Without going in to all the details of my stupidity, I had way to much to drink last Saturday night, and ended up going a little too far with a male friend. I have never had full blown sexual intercourse before (with me climaxing and a partner climaxing). However, we starting fooling around and he put his penis in me and we had sex for about 2 minutes. He withdrew before climaxing.

On Monday afternoon, (about 32 hours after sex), i got the morning after pill and took it, then took the next one 12 hours later.

I've never been on any birth control before, and I've felt very sick sense taking the Plan B, is this normal? Is this just it's way of working. I'm so scared. This has taught me to never make this mistake again.

Plan B can have some side effects like that..birth control does that as well for the first month or so just because of the horomones...it could also be because you are so stressed out and worried..you took plan B soon enough so I think its safe to say that you're ok...but it would be smart to go on birth control so you dont find yourself in this situation again..and if you dont like birth control at least buy some condoms and keep them on hand!

I know and I totally agree. I will never make myself go through this misery again. I guess I had to learn the hard way that safety is not something you can just forget.

Well, my period isn't due for another 2 weeks, so hopefully it will come when its supposed to. I've heard that Plan B can make it come early or later though. Late's hope earlier. I'm losing my mind.

If ur period isnt due for another 2weeks means u were ovulating when you had sex. I dont mean to scare you but I would run tests if you start to feel these symtoms like fatigue, headaches, abdominal pains etc.
I had the same situation with my husband and took the pill 36hrs later. Now I am 4weeks pregnant. Also I tested myself 1week ago (1 week after my period was due) and tested negative. One week later I tested multiple times & turned positive.
I suggest run your tests if you delay your period beyond a week!
