Patient : Ok, so the last time I had sex with my boyfriend was June 6th. Even though I was on birth control (note: I'd been in birth control for one month), we still used a condom. While we were having sex, my phone rang so we stopped. He went to the restroom and came out worried. The condom broke but we didn't know if it broke when he took it off or during sex. Worried, he bought me Plan B and I took it within 48 hours. On June 12th, my period started and I bled a lot for four days ans barely the last 3 days (my regular period lasts 7 days). Then on June 24th, I started bleeding again like I was having another period (I didn't know if I was or not) and it lasted for a full 7 days. A couple of weeks ago, my boyfriend and I broke up so I stopped taking the birth control pills on June 22nd. It is now July 22nd and my period hasn't came down yet! A lot has happened to me in the past few weeks; a breakup, lost my job and a loved one I was close to past away so I know stress can stop a period but I'm still worried. Am I pregnant?? Or is it just hormonal changes??
