Hormonal imbalance: Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

Had unprotected sex 2days after period ended (he claims to not finish) took planb 24hrs later. Now (6days later) red streaks & light spotting. What?

Low possibility: To get pregnant, you must ovulate. Ovulation occurs 14 days before your period. So depending on how often your period comes will determine if you can be pregnant. Day 1 is the first day of your full flow. If you have 28 day cycles then having sex around day 14 will put you at risk of pregnancy. Being on birth control suppresses ovulation so you are most likely not pregnant. ...Read more
