Hi, I posted recently about taking Plan B after intercourse recently.

I took Plan B on May 12, 2013. I bled heavily on May 18, 2013 for 4 days. I didn't have cramps or any other period symptoms, but there was endometrium present. It looks like my period, but didn't feel like it.

On May 31, I had ovulation-like discharge (what my personal discharge looks like when I ovulate), with a little bit of bright pink mixed in. It scared me because I thought it was implantation bleeding. I took 3 pregnancy tests, two on June 1st, 1 on June 3rd. All negative. 21=23 days after intercourse.

My period is due this week and I don't think I'm going to get it. Should I be concerned about the weird spotting I had? Thanks [Smile]

Plan B can affect your cycles for a few months, and irregular bleeding or spotting is a common side effect. (Sometimes spotting happens with ovulation, too, so that could be what the spotting was.)

Regardless, you've taken 3 pregnancy tests, so that's not a concern here. Just keep in mind that it might take your body a while to get back to its normal pattern.
