Brief Answer:

No chance of pregnancy this time.

Detailed Answer:


I have read & understood your concern.

So according to the history you provided, you had sex two times , about 5-7 days prior to your expected menstruation.

First day it was non penetrative sex, still you had taken Plan B pill. Next day you had protected penetrative sex( with condom on).

There is least possibility of pregnancy with sex, a week before regular period (as pregnancy is possible only around 2 weeks before expected menses, as that is the ovulation time.)

So you did not have chance of pregnancy with both the sexes mentioned in the query. On the top of that you had taken Plan B which exclude the possibility of getting pregnant totally.

* Now about the bleeding-
- You had it after second sex, loosing your virginity that day- This bleeding was due to tearing of Hymen ( that covers vaginal opening in virgins).

- You would have another bout of bleeding after a week of taking Plan B (being withdrawal of the medicine from your system)

- Your menses would be late by 8-10 days this month & may remain irregular for coming few months (because of pan B).

So be careful & protected when you have sex these days. Plan B is an emergency contraceptive. Taking it frequently would cause menstrual problems.

So it's advised to use regular oral contraceptive or use condom with care in case you intend to continue regular sex, consult a gynecologist for personal advise

Hope I have answered your question.
