Arrow How Long Is Too Long?!?!?!

i took the MAP (plan B to be exact) on last tuesday (around the time when i was due to start my period and i took it b4 missing my period cuz it was in the 72 hr period) and its been a week now and i haven't started my period yet.

if u refer to any of my last threads, they tell you how low-risk my situation is but since its my first "situation" (and my last.. ive learned from this!) im still confused.

i haven't been stressing out about it too much so i dont know what's taking so long to start my period.

im irregular sometimes but how long should i wait until i start worryinG?

There is no set answer to your question I'm afraid. The map can affect people differently. If your period hasn't arrived three weeks after you took the MAP I would have a pregnancy test. If this is negative then just hang in ther and wait.
Good luck.

There's no set time, but I'm not surprised at all that you didn't get you period yet. The MAP is basically like taking an extra dose of birth control pills all at once. Doing that is definately going to cause an interruption in your cycles. I re-read your story about the low risk of pregnancy in your situation and I really don't think you have anything to worry about, assumming you didn't leave any info out of your posts. I agree that you could take a pregnancy test after about 3 weeks after taking the MAP. I'm glad that you decided to wait on the sex, it's worth waiting for. When you're ready, you probably want to get on some sort of birth control, too.
