k well i have taken plan B twice now i took it the first time and didnt experience any side effects. I took it this time. we had unprotected sex on the day my period ended (sunday) and i immediately took plan B on the exact scheduled time. Thursday night I noticed bleeding and it concerned me so i went to do my homework. I know there are side effects of the pill and i know that its very early, but is it even possible for me to be pregnant, is it implantation bleeding???? I know i feel VERY moody and i know i feel sick, but I know it's because I'm MAKING myself sick with worry. I need to know, is it too soon to take an accurate pregnancy test, if so how long should i wait. The bleeding is very bright red and changes in shades, it appears to be just like a normal period but as soon as i think its gone it reappears, its very inconsistent and its now Monday so its kind of got me on edge curious about how long it will last. I know the pill can make you have earlier periods but Mine JUST NOW ended on sunday could it be back again this soon. I really need help here before i die of a heart attack lol. please someone tell me if i should be worrying or not. I'm pretty sure I'm just having a melt-down but i need a little reassurance. side effects or preggo?

Its the side effects.

Bleeding after taking Plan B is a good thing, you only need to be worried if you don't experience bleeding.

You'll have irregular bleeding and spotting for up to three months. You may want to consider another form of birth control. Birth control pills could help regulate your hormones earlier.

Concerned about possibility of being Pregnant.
How long does it take for the bleeding from Plan B to actually happen? I'm curious, because I took it last night and my period is suppose to start on the 13th of March.

well my period usually is pretty consistant lasting at about 5 or so days. I know i need another form of birth control, i still live at home though and my parent doesnt know I'm sexually active and she has VERY strong opinions against ANY form of sexual activity. I'm in a serious relationship and i plan on getting married as soon as i graduate high school. I just was freaking out over it. I didnt know if it was implant bleeding and then i read something about Eptopic pregnancy. idk I just needed someone to talk to considering i cant go to my parent with it. I'm the "good girl" of the family.

I just need a girls side though. lol

Smile I suggested birth control pills because its common for Plan B to affect your cycle for up to three months. Your period is not going to be consistant for awhile.

But you at least need to be using condoms. They are cheap and you could even get them for free at some places. Plan B is not a routine birth control-- its for emergencies like condom breaking or something to that affect.

Plan B is supposed to cause bleeding.

We do use condoms, we are very careful...we just got a little stupid that night. and i know Plan B isnt for all the time, but since i dont use it all the time i was just a little scared of it. but its good to know that you guys think I'll be ok, I know I'll be worried for the next few weeks and waiting on things to straighten back out but its good to know you guys think i should be fine Smile thank you so much

Heavy Bleeding after Plan B pill
I'm a 42 y/o woman and I just took plan b for the first time 3 weeks ago. I had a period 1 week after taking the pill which was a little heavier than normal and lasted 7 days as opposed to my reg. 5 days. On the 8th day the spotting returned and on the 10th day (last night) the heavy bleeding returned...w/ cramping. I'm a little freaked out to say the least. Just read that period may be affected for 3 months. That's a bummer. Guess I'll be more careful next time. After 3 years of celibacy, I guess I just got caught up in the momment. Damn! I was wondering how long this heavy bleeding is going to last? Don't understand where all the blood a tissue are coming from if I just had a heavy period???

first of all..... you cannot get pregnant via anal sex or cumming in her butt. there is no connection between the anus and the vagina...

Hey! The same thing is happening to me! And the other 20 people too? Haha Smile one thing I will say is that if you have your period, YOU ARE NOT PREGNANT! Good to know huh? Smile my situation was that me and my boyfriend of 3 years were using protection but at the end, their was a tiny tiny hole and so that's why we bought this plan b pill. I took it that exact sane night and he was and is very supportive. I got my period a little earlier but after a week, it was just a brown color and now it's a bright red with other shades. I feel like I'm loosing a lot of blood because it's so much heavier than normal!

My boyfriend said that I should see a doctor but after reading this, I don't think it's necessary Smile others are having the same problem but still read over the side effects or call their toll free number on their website in their FAQ's section. It's possible after 3 months, everything will return back to normal! Now if you are ever pregnant, you will know!!!!! Everything changes like Brest size, sickness, missed period excetera! Don't be afraid to by a pregnancy test! If you are sexually active often, think about birth control! I'm planning to pay for it my self without my parents when I turn 18 Smile respond if you want!

Freaking Out Spaz
I took plan b last Friday and experienced no obvious side effects... Now it is Tuesday and I have started spotting and having cramps even though I am not supposed to get my period for another 2 weeks or so. Is it normal for the side effects to start becoming noticeable after 5 days and not directly after? I am freaking out. Please respond!

Plan B cycle or spotting
I took a Plan B the day after my cycle, the condom broke. Now on Sunday, I'm bleeding. It scared me for a second because it happened so sudden. How long is this supposed to last?? I couldn't possibly be starting a new cycle after a week. Is it just going to be spotting, because I can handle that, but a new cycle... Really?!
