Question: Hello I am a 19 year old girl and I took plan B on XXXXXXX 24th the day after sex. I then got my period the day I was suppose to on July 4th but I also became sick with high fever for the next few days. For the following week until the 25 every morning whenever I peed it was tinted a little red. I was suppose to get my period today August 1rst but I didn't. I have been having period symptoms like emotional and occasional cramps. I took a pregancy test early morning and it came out negative. My question is because plan b extended my period did it also mess up my period this month? Or am I pregnant?

Brief Answer:
NO you are not pregnant

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

YES, plan B can cause change in periods for a few months.

You will get periods late after taking plan B for few months. It will resolve on its own.

NO you are not pregnant but if you want to confirm get a blood beta HCG test.

It is more specific than the urine test.

Regards,

Dr. Som MD

Thank you for answering so quickly but the blood test is not possible right now. How long should I wait before I take another pregnancy test? Can it be a week late or longer?

Brief Answer:
4 weeks at least

Detailed Answer:
Dear,

You should take a urine pregnancy test at least 4 weeks after missed periods.

So if you missed periods on 1st august there is no point doing it before 29 th august ( after 4 weeks).

Regards,

Dr. Som

Last year, i started having that pain in my tonsils, ears hurt and having a high fever that lasts up to two weeks. This happens almost every 3months up to now. I never consulted a Doctor. I'm 19 years old, female. I remembered the days when i swallowed my boyfriends semen, this is where it all started. I drink paracetamol and anti bacterial, lozenges and pineapple juice for relief. Will it be throat cancer when i get old? What is this?
