Is it healthy to have a longer period after taking plan b? I have had my period for 7 days when normally my period lasts only 5 days

I have been on nexplanon for 2 weeks had unprotected sex, and I am worried that if I take a Plan B pill it will increase the chance of a long period?

Why plan B?: Nexplanon is a contraceptive. If you had it inserted for 2 weeks you should be protected against pregnancy. There is no need for emergency contraception (plan B) since you are already using a (long acting) contraception -NEXPLANON.

How long can your period be delayed after taking Plan B and what are symptoms to be expected a month after plan b?

A week delay.: You should have a normal period within the next month after taking emergency contraceptive pills. Sometimes, emergency contraception can change the length of your monthly menstrual cycle, making your next period come as much as a week earlier or a week later than usual. Some women also find that the hormones in the pills can cause unexpected bleeding.

Hard to predict...: Irregular bleeding after taking a morning-after pill, like Plan-B or Ella, (ulipristal acetate) is somewhat common. Some women get spotting or bleeding before the next period. Women may also have a heavier or lighter next period, or a period that is early or late. Probably will be back to usual after 6-8 weeks. A urine pregnancy test can be done 3 weeks after taking a morning-after pill, to be sure the pill worked.
