My last period was 2 weeks ago. Soon after I took Plan B. Now I'm about 11 days from my next period and I've started very light bleeding. It is not like a period, but is very light and I have cramping with it. Can this just be a side effect from the Plan B even though I took it 2 weeks ago?

Welcome to ehealthforum.
The light bleeding and cramps two weeks after your usual period can indicate a possible implantation bleeding. Visit your gynecologist and discuss your symptoms. The effect of Plan-B will not cause bleeding after 2 weeks. Go ahead with further tests to find the cause for your symptoms.
Take care.
