Bike not Plan B: Plan B is a morning after pill that prevents ovulation or fertilization and is a hormone called progesterone. There are no indications that it causes general increases in bleeding disorders although a female can have vaginal blood flow with it. The bruise is most likely from the minor bike crash and it took a while to "come to the surface.
