Light pink spotting 2 weeks after plan B. I am supposed to be getting period in one week. Is it implantation bleeding or a side effect of plan B?

Light pink spotting 2 weeks after plan B. I am supposed to be getting period in one week. Is it implantation bleeding or a side effect of plan B?

Can't tell: Plan B works most of the time, if taken soon after sex. When a woman does her home urine pregnancy test 3 weeks after using Plan B, she can tell whether her spotting was "implantation bleeding" or not. Always do a pregnancy test 3 weeks after Plan B. If the test result is negative, it was not "implantation bleeding". If the test is positive, then it was "implantation bleeding". ...Read more

Took Plan B two days before period was meant to come. Had brown spotting for two days. It has now been a week since expected period and nothing. Preg?

Doubtful, but....: Check a pregnancy test just to make sure not pregnant. The bleeding you had with your Plan B was likely your period, but it is very common for it to be very unusual in amount and duration. It is also not unusual for you to "miss" your "normal" period as the lining of the uterus has already shed itself. But if you have any concerns about pregnancy, an OTC test is accurate, quick and cheap ...Read more
