Wait: Spotting may occur due to stress, hormonal imbalances, medication use, use of contraceptives, infection or pregnancy. If you are concerned about infection, see your dr. If you are concerned about pregnancy, the best option is to wait and see. Preg tests will most likely stay negative until beta hcg levels build to a detectable level-usually 4-6wks after missed period or scanty spotting.

Typical with Plan B: Plan b essentially disrupts the normal menstrual cycle by blocking or delaying ovulation. That it is how it works and why it is so different than a medical abortion. Irregular bleeding after taking Plan B is not rare. Always check a pregnancy test after using Plan B and see a doctor to start a better form of birth control.
