How long do you spot after taking plan b? And is it normal to start spotting a week after taking it?

Typical with Plan B: Plan b essentially disrupts the normal menstrual cycle by blocking or delaying ovulation. That it is how it works and why it is so different than a medical abortion.

DNA testing: In order to determine the conception date you can not use the baby’s birthday. You need an accurate data point such as an early sonogram, certain last period, confirmed date of intercourse or a certain due date provided by your doctor. Then use an online reverse due date calculator to find the conception date. If this is to determine paternity this you need DNA testing. I recommend 1800-DNA-TEST ...Read more

My girlfriend took Plan B after sex i pulled out she had her period the week after this is 3 weeks after it and she had a spot. Is that normal?

Very likely. : The timing for a cycle is not commonly that short and spotting is common. Check a pregnancy test and use a better method of birth control than pulling out and Plan B. If pregnancy test negative -very likely- repeat pregnancy test if no "normal cycle" in the next 2 weeks. And be prudent with alcohol, etc. ...Read more
