I took plan B on October 19th, I started bleeding on the 25th. Is it too early to be bleeding? It looks like a period but it just lasted 3 days. I am worried it might be implantation bleeding but what I bled was not brown or light pink, it was red. What's going on?

EC is basically a huge dose of hormones, so our bodies tend to need a bit of time to gte back to normal after taking it. Our menstrual cycles, especially, are likely to be a bit off for a while after taking EC. So, bleeding when you weren't really expecting to, is pretty common.

And a note on implantation bleeding: It happens very rarely, and when it does, it is really light and cannot be mistaken for a period.
