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.
