Is it healthy to have a longer period after taking plan b? I have had my period for 7 days when normally my period lasts only 5 days

In brief: One

One of the most common side effects of using the Plan B is an irregular cycle afterwards.
If you find yourself having prolonged bleeding (2 weeks or more) or if you are having extremely heavy bleeding that worries you, contact your doctor. Below i've attached a website with lots of great information about emergency contraception. Good luck!
