on October 18th I had unprotected sex. I took the Plan B pill right after. About three days later I had bleeding for a week. It felt and looked exactly like when I have my period. That ended on October 27th. Ever since then I haven't had any bleeding. This past week I have been experiencing period like cramping, but no bleeding. I am going to take a pregnancy test, but also wanted opinions and help on here too.

HI jennyClOF10 and welcome to Scarleteen,

Many people find that taking Plan B significantly alters their menstrual cycles for a few months after taking it, so that could explain that bleeding pattern.

It is always best to take a pregnancy test after using emergency contraception, to ensure that the Plan B did it's job.

Thank you for answering!! I'm taking a pregnancy test, for sure. just a question too, if I bled three days after Plan B, does that mean it worked?

Bleeding from Plan B isn't known to be a specific indication that it worked.

However, generally when we have a period it means we're not pregnant.
