me and my boyfriend had sex about 17 days ago. it was unprotected and our very first time. the next day, about 24 hours exactly afterwards, i took Plan B. about 2-3 days after i took plan b, i had bleeding, what i thought was my period. it only last 3 days though and wasn't spotting, but like medium bleeding. but i had just gotten my period 1 week before the unprotected sex, so my first question is could the bleeding i had be my period? or could the plan b have caused it? then me and my boyfriend had sex about 3 more times since then but all protected. so i haven't really worried. but today, i noticed some white discharge and it smelled bad, and i heard if your pregnant, it smells bad. [i have no idea where i heard that but i did] so my second question is that mabey the plan b didn't work and could the discharge be a sign of pregnancy or somthing? its been somewhere around 18 days since my last REAL period so could i just be ovaluating? or mabey the Plan B is still having effect on my body even though i took it about 15 days ago? i'm just really freaked out right now. i'm way to young to be pregnant. i have no idea what i'd do. please tell me anything you can.

You took the EC very soon after the risk, and you've had period-like bleeding since, so it's not likely at all that you are pregnant. And certainly, EC can affect you for a while after taking it (it's a huge dose of hormones) so still experiencing some wonkyness in your menstrual cycle is normal.
Smelly discharge is not a sign of pregnancy, either. If your discharge smells bad, it's more likely you caught yourself an infection, and it would be wise to get that checked out by a gyn.
Keep in mind that unprotected sex also carries the risk of STI transmission, so if you two aren't up to date on your tests, now is a good time to make an appointment to get tested.
