I took plan B and I have had 3 periods this month that have all been heavier and have had more cramps then normal. should I be worried or conclude that it is from the plan B?

HI mickg5765 and welcome to Scarleteen,

Plan B is known to interfere with the menstrual cycles for many people for a few months after they've taken it, and that is what this sounds like.

However, regardless of the side effects, you'll still want to take a pregnancy test 14 or more days after the pregnancy risk you took the Plan B for, to make sure that the Plan B did its job and you did in fact not get pregnant.
