One very common side effect of Plan B is impacting the menstrual cycle either by causing spotting or making the next few periods irregular. So what you're describing isn't unusual given that you've taken Plan B recently.

There's some information about that here: Emergency Contraception (Plan B or the Morning-After-Pill)

Hi Jessica,

One of the side effects many people experience after they take Plan B is changes to their menstrual cycle. These changes can last for a few months and can include periods that are earlier or later than expected, missed periods, and spotting between periods.

Here's some more information on
