Hi maria90,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  The changes in your period can be due to either Plan B or your new birth control.  Some of the side effects for Plan B are changes in your next period.  If you are still concened, it might be good to take a home pregnancy test.  If you had your period it's very unlikely you will be pregnant.

Here are some resources for you
