Question about Plan B side effects

Asking for a internet-unsavvy friend.

She had sex the first day of her period when she was spotting and their condom broke. Just to be safe, she took the Plan B pill. Now, 10 days later she is still bleeding when her usual period was only 4-5 days long.

Is this normal? Or should she be seeing a doctor?

Re: Question about Plan B side effects

  • Its very common for Plan B to cause bleeding like a normal period would. If it lasts another 4 days (so 14 days total) I would see a doctor.
  • it is normal.

    though, honestly, there was just about no way she could have gotten KU simply due to timing. it's highly doubtful she would O on that day.

  • It is common! No worries unless it keeps going on for a while. I would agree that it is unlikely she would have gotten pregnant, but it is also technically possible to get pregnant at any time of your cycle however unlikely it might be.  Just as long as she doesn't resort to Plan B frequently!
  • It's completely normal. Plan B can not only cause you to have bleeding like a regular period, but it can cause you to have much more bleeding than with a normal period due to the fact that it is such a whopping dose of hormones that it basically causes everything to go haywire for a while.
