Need advice, Am I pregnant?

My boyfriend and I had sex on Sunday the 14th (July) and the condom broke. I took the Plan B pill within 24 hours. My period was set to start on Wednesday, the 17th. I am always really regular give or take a day or two early or late. I got my period that Friday the 19th. If was definitely a normal period, very heavy. The only odd thing was that it usually lasts 6 days and this one was 8 days, however the last 2 days were just very light, but I've heard that plan b can make your period last longer. So since I had a normal period, I figured I couldn't be pregnant. Yesterday morning, the 16th (august), I got a terrible headache and it lasted pretty much all day. This morning I woke up really nauseas with a tight feeling in my stomach. I felt ok laying down but when I stood up it hit me. No other symptoms, won't be able to get a pregnancy test until this evening so I would just like some opinions to hopefully help me relax and not worry so much!!

Welcome to ehealthforum

Plan B if taken within 24 hours is quite effective in prevention of pregnancy.It is also associated with side effects as nausea,vomitting,abdominal pain,headache etc.It might be that due to sudden hormonal fluctuations your body is reacting like this.
Wait for the periods which might be delayed by a week.If they do not start consider visiting a Gynaecologist for evaluation.

Take Care!
