How long does the brown spotting last...beeen taking Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) for nearly two wks. Period finished a wk ago. Makes me emotional.

I took plan b a week ago and I am still feeling very fatigued how much longer should this last? I also have brown spotting for the last 3 days.

 I took plan b a week ago and I am still feeling very fatigued how much longer should this last? I also have brown spotting for the last 3 days.
