No. Your period does not change, with a lighter or heavier flow, after you have sex for the first time.

Hi Anon!

Bleeding a few days to a week after taking Plan B is a fairly common side effect. Did you have the Plan B with you, in order to take it after having sex? Instead you should be using condoms.

So this bleeding could be from the Plan B or it could be an early period because Plan B sometimes causes the next cycle to be irregular. But it's not possible to know which it is.  If you are worried about pregnancy you can take a test two weeks after you had unprotected sex.

Good luck!
