Started spotting brown/ pink discharge after plan b.Took 2 pregnant tests ( both neg). Took them 2 weeks after taking plan b. Could i be pregnant at all?

Not likely: Plan b can cause irregular bleeding for 1-2 months after taking. Home urine pregnancy tests are very accurate. They will turn positive at 14 days after conception. In very early pregnancy, there can be a false negative if a woman drank a lot of water or other fluid before taking the test. So if you're not sure, repeat the test after not drinking for 8 hours. If that's still negative, then no. ...Read more

Can brown discharge a week after taking Plan B (took on the 3rd day of my period) be counted as another period? Am now late but also had a neg hpt.

No worries: Sounds like you had some "breaktrough"bleeding after taking the load of hormones in the morning after pill. As long as you took it within 72 hours after unprotected intercourse you should be safe. To be sure do a pregnancy test 4 weeks after the deed. Consider contraception; lower dose of hormones involved and regular periods or none (usually). ...Read more
