Just missed my period
lexy42 posted:
Hi Everyone,

I just missed my period a week ago, I haven't had the nerve to get a pregnancy test done yet since I am afraid of the results. Regardless, I have been eating healthy (I always do; I'm a marathon runner) and I have been aware that this might be a possibility for a while now. Sometimes you just know. However, I took PlanB since this really isn't the best time for me as I am making a major transition in my career. It's not something that I cannot handle but not exactly anticipated.

I am worried what the effects of taking PlanB will be on my child. I am also older (30 yrs old) so I'm more aware that this might be a more difficult pregnancy.

Any advice?

When did you take Plan B? If you took it fairly recently but before your period was due, it's likely the Plan B messed with your hormones which in turn messed with your period.
