Condom Broke, Plan B, Funny Period

The last day of my previous period was May 18. On June 9 (Saturday) I had sex. He was wearing a condom that broke. He wasn't sure if any got inside me. We went right away and got Plan B. I took it maybe an hour after the condom broke. I was supposed to get my period the next day (Sunday).

Nothing happened until on Thursday I started lightly spotting a brown mucus. For the past 6 months my period has been irregular (anywhere between 3-7 days off) but I'm concerned that I might be pregnant. How much can Plan B mess with your period? How big a factor does stress plan into it? Any advice would be much appreciated!

I'm going through exactly the same thing, it seems like the hormones in the plan b pill really messes with one's menstrual cycle. I try to comfort myself by saying that's the reason why my period is late - but I am also going to take a pregnancy test soon to just reassure myself. Plan B is supposed to be very effective, so I don't think you should worry too much (although I know it's very very very stressful, trust me, I even dreamt of getting my period..). I think we should both just calm ourselves, and wait, and take a pregnancy test for extra reassurance.
