I took Plan B one step about a week ago and had mild side effect. Now I started to have bad cramps like my menstrual cramps and a feeling like my flow was trying to come down. Is this normal?

Side effects vs STI: Some women notice that their periods are off in timing +/- 2 days after taking Plan B. It is often the next month's period that is heavier or longer, not the current one.
In your case, I suspect you had unprotected sex (hence the need for Plan B) and may be experiencing pain from a pelvic infection/ STI. You need to see a physician for STI testing and treatment. ...Read more

It can also increase your appetite, but for most people this is not noticeable. The increased appetite, if it occurs, should really last no more than a few days. It might alter your bowel habits - but, again, only for a few days. ...Read more

With irregular periods, it can be hard to guess when to test, perhaps at 2.5-3 weeks after sex. ...Read more
