would that have been my period, or was that just an add on too the plan b. Also, why did teh bleeding happen so late, almost 6 days after I took it. We had sex after i took it un-protected, I know it was stupid, but once I take it aren't I safe for three days?

Hi again Anon

No, having unprotected sex after taking Plan B does not mean you are protected at all. You are not.

It can take several days to bleed after taking Plan B (if you have bleeding as a side effect). But if your period was due, it could be that. We cannot tell you which it was.

Hi Anon

This is usually a side effect of Plan B. If you want to test for pregnancy then you need to wait at least 14 days after you had unprotected sex. Plan B is about 91% effective.
