Got a short, 2 day period 5 days after Plan B. Two weeks later, got a negative pregnancy test on day of my expected period. Could I still be pregnant?

Unlikely: If you did not have unprotected sex since the "two day period", it is unlikely that you are pregnant. You may wish to repeat the pregnancy test in a week, if you do not get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex.

I took the Plan B pill about five days ago. I got my period but now I am having irratation around my vagina. No discharge or odor.

Not related: Probably not related. I would recommend that you use a reliable form of contraception. See your physician. I would also avoid drugs, medications, other substances that are harmful to a fetus. Get a serum pregnancy test two weeks after your intercourse- watch for signs of being pregnant- Plan B can fail. Stop using any soaps or creams around the vagina- treat the area gently- see a physician. ...Read more

I've been spotting bright red blood for five days now. I took the plan B pill on the 16th. Could this be implantation bleeding or just a light period?

I've been spotting bright red blood for five days now. I took the plan B pill on the 16th. Could this be implantation bleeding or just a light period?

A person can't tell: Wait and test. A positive pregnancy test can tell a woman that prior spotting was actually implantation spotting. It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred). ...Read more
