Plan B bleeding : Yes. Plan B is a hormone medication so it can have effects on ovulation and bleeding. But it does not work 100% of the time You should consider getting HCG level ( may be negligible if fetal demise ) and or ultrasound ( though early on may not show anything). if using more than 1 pad/ tampon every 2 -2.5 hours, severe pain go to ER/ urgent care. https://www.drugs.com/plan-b.ht
