I have been posting here a lot lately, because, as you probably know, I have a pregnancy scare.

I just noticed that I had stringy discharge with a pink tint to it. That has never happened to me before and I heard that the only time you have "breakthrough bleeding" (like bleeding during your pill cycle) is when you have messed up.

I also had to take Plan B on November 22 and my nurse told me that I MAY experience some bleeding from that, but she just told me that yesterday and until now I have not seen any signs of that -- so what are the odds?

I am scared to death I am pregnant from my unprotected sex on Sunday morning around 1 am.
Why else would my cycle be messed up = pink discharge?

It's totally normal for EC to cause unexpected or unusual bleeding or spotting, for as long as even a few months. Plus, you took that while also ON the pill, so that's a lotta hormones for your body to make sense of.
