The start of this month the condom broke while having sex. So to be on the safe side my boyfriend and I went and got Plan B. A day after that I got my period.. heavier then normal but nothing serious. That lasted about a 7 days which is like 4 longer then normal. Anyways, I have been off my period for about 6 days now and it started again.. but not a normal period.. darker then normal. (gross and im sorry) and its not heavy yet.. but it only has been less then a day. I'm concerned just because I have already had my period this month..and I dont really understand why I would be getting another one.. I don't know.. Any thoughts?! Thanks!!

Plan B is a high dose hormonal birth control pill that works by manipulating your hormones that control your cycles. It will mess with your period for a few cycles.

I think what you are seeing is 'normal' after Plan B.

I agree any sort of morning after pill or birth control pill affects your normal cycle, you should be back to normal in 2-3 weeks If not visit your doctor for further advice...jenny
