i have a regular period. I had it on the first of March. My period usually lasted for a week. I have to travel on the 6th and i took a medicine to stop the spotting on the 8th until 14th. Then I had this bleeding. I was wondering if there is a tendency for me to get pregnant after that? And if not, will my period be still as regular as it is? I mean, will I wait for my period on the same date it comes or should I wait it until the last day of my bleeding? Thank you so much.

Hello last month, June 3rd, I had unprotected sex and the same day I took the emergency pill, Plan B. On June 17th I had bleeding that lasted 3 days but I'm not sure if it was implantation bleeding or not. Now it is July 17th and for the past week I have had soft stools that will not go away. I'm not sure if I am pregnant or not and the thought is unsettling. Also I have not gotten my period this month yet.

Thank you,
