What does it mean when you take Plan B and you spot lightly the next day?

In brief: Difficult to say

One of the side effects of Plan B is abnormal bleeding, so it is possible that the spotting is from the medication.
Remember that Plan B only decreases your chances of unintended pregnancy by half. Just because you have some spotting does not mean you are not pregnant, so you might consider taking a home pregnancy test and see your physician as soon as possible.
