Can I take my BC pills once I start bleeding after taking plan b? How can I tell if it's my normal period?

In brief: OCP start

Most women have some kind of bleeding around a week after taking plan B.
It certainly would be fine to start the pill once that happens or 2 weeks after you take plan b once you confirm you have a negative pregnancy test. Plan B is only 75% effective at best.
