Patient : I am 24 years old and took Plan B one step on Tuesday November 8 afternoon after our condom failed on Monday night. It was only my second time having sex ever, both times with the same guy. I started my period yesterday (about 2 days early) and the cramps are very intense. When I was 18 years old I was put on Ortho tri cyclen lo birth control pills to regulate my periods. This birth control caused severe cramps and lots of abnormal bleeding so I discontinued it. Could I be having an allergic reaction like I did with the birth control? Or is this normal?
