My girlfriend is on BC and out of security took a plan b pill yesterday. She is now bleeding, but not enough for a period. What does this mean?

Normal after plan B: It is not a good idea to take Plan B pill on top of BC. Heavy bleeding with this combination is likely. Now consider this as a normal period. After 5 days start a new cycle of BC pills. If bleeding persists after 5 days or if severe cramps, dizziness, light headed, then see your primary doctor or Ob/Gyn right away. ...Read more

So my friend started bleeding for 4 days after taking plan b within 8 hrs of having unprotected sex, so does that mean she's pregnant?

So my friend started bleeding for 4 days after taking plan b within 8 hrs of having unprotected sex, so does that mean she's pregnant?

Can do a preg. Test: Taking Plan B can alter the timing and quality of the current menstrual cycle and the upcoming cycle. One should check a urine pregnancy test 3 weeks after taking Plan B, because Plan B works most of the time but not all of the time. Home urine pregnancy tests are very accurate, and are sold everywhere at a low price. ...Read more

I took plan b over a week ago and have been bleeding/spotting since. I'm meant to bc this cycle- not sure when to start it. Period due Friday.?

This is not uncommon: After Plan B. It alters your hormones and the effects can be seen into the next cycle or more. I would go ahead and start your birth control pills when your period starts. If spotting so much that you can't tell when that is, I would just go ahead and start it 28 days after your last period. Discuss any concerns with your Doctor. Good wishes:) ...Read more

5 days after I took plan b I started volleyball practice. I noticed vaginal bleeding while I work out but it stops when I'm done. Should I be worried?

No: Some irregular bleeding may occur for several days after taking Plan B. However, you should do a pregnancy test to ascertain that Plan B worked to prevent pregnancy. Also, down the road if you want to avoid pregnancy, it is best to use consistent contraception ...Read more

Does what looks like implantation bleeding (discharge with a pink tint) the day after taking the Plan B pill mean that I would have a baby otherwise?

Not necessarily: The hormone you took may also cause some spotting and many women also have some midcycle spotting now and then. Spotting after sex can happen as well. Plan B however, is not 100% effective, so check a pregnancy test in about 2 weeks and maybe schedule an appointment with your family physician or gyn to get on birth control, which is much more effective. ...Read more

Took plan b on (7/4). Started bleeding on (7/14)still bleeding, its a bit heavy/medium. Expected period due on (7/21)Is this my period? What does it mean?

Hormonal imbalance: Plan B may upset the normal hormonal cycle and cause irregular bleeding. This is likely due to hormonal withdrawal you may consider it your period. Take oral iron and multivitamin to prevent anemia due to loss of iron with the blood.
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.
