When on "the pill", if I have a withdrawal bleeding (fake period) then it means that I did NOT conceive, right? So I can be calm??

Yes: If you bleed during the placebo pills, you did not get pregnant. With some of the lower dose pills, you may have minimal bleeding, but that's ok. Just don't miss any pills.

Plan B bleeding: If you have had bleeding post Plan B Rx use, then your medication probably worked. You can confirm the same by doing a pregnancy test.
