I'm on tri previfem and took plan b 3 weeks ago. I have a yeast infection w/blood. Is the blood from plan b or is it a sign of implantation? Nervous

Confusing: If you are already on birth control pills then there is no need to take Plan B as you were already protected. Implantation bleeding only occurs if you are pregnant which is not likely since you are on birth control. Yeast does not usually cause blood. I suspect you just triggered some bleeding from adding Plan B on top of your birth control. ...Read more

The best thing to do is after you have missed a period get a home pregnancy test kit from your friendly pharmacist and check a first morning voided urine. If you do not miss a period do not bother.

Be examined: Based on your description it may be something your perineum, or bottom area is coming in contact with. Be checked to make sure it is not something else. I don't believe it is related to Plan B. Benadryl if no allergies and cold packs may be helpful. Bathing in Aveeno may also help. ...Read more
