    Plan B and no period after BC?
    robbie1894 posted:
    I started taking birth control pills and they are the ones you take for 21 days. Doctor told me to stop taking them after 21 days, let the period come (should come about 2-3 days after stop taking them) and then begin them again 8 days after stopping.
    What the doctor didnt tell me was that it takes a week for them to work and me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex 3 days after starting them.
    Long story short, My period never came within the 3 day time period after stopping them. on the second day after stopping the first 21 pill cycle i took a plan B pill because our condom broke.
    I took a pregnancy text (5 day fast acting) before I took plan B the second day and it showed a strong line for not pregnant.

    Has anyone not got their period after taking the 21 day cycle their first time like they were supposed to?
    I know plan B can affect period cycles for some girls, would it make a period not come same day or next day after taking it if thats when it was scheduled to come?
