i had 2 periods during the month of october & the last one was on halloween weekend (Oct 29) & according to my period tracker on my ipod, my next period was supposed to be on Nov 16 (but according to my 28 day calculation im supposed to get it on Nov 25) i was not intimate during that time, i was intimate & took plan B on nov 29 just a few hours after unprotected sex, i completely skipped my november period which i thought it would just be a week or so late since my period usually comes a week or two late (or come in early Dec) but it is now Dec 12 & i still have not gotten my period
(sorry for double posting this, was not sure which was the right forum to ask)
Welcome to ehealthforum.
Having 2 periods in the same cycle is abnormal. It could suggest possibility of pregnancy with implantation bleed, breakthrough bleeding due to birth control use, spotting due to hormonal issues etc. The emergency contraceptive taken within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse does gives you protection.
If you were already pregnant at the time of intercourse on Nov 29th and took the emergency contraceptive, then it can harm the baby due to the high hormonal dosage in them.
Visit your gynecologist for a thorough examination and tests like blood HCG levels and ultrasound scan to confirm/rule out pregnancy and look for other underlying causes that could lead to absent periods (like ovarian cyst, hormonal derangements, PCOS etc).
