A few days after my period ended, I had sex and there were some issues with the condom. I am not currently on birth control and to be safe, I took the PlanB pill the next morning. Now, 5 days later, I started to have period-like bleeding again. It was enough to require multiple tampons throughout the day. I'm nearing the end of the second day of this "period" and I still need tampons, but it is lighter in flow.

Is this a side effect from the pill or implantation bleeding? I still have two weeks until the time my period usually shows up. I'm just not sure what is going on and after reading a bunch of conflicting things, I am worried. I know consulting my doctor is best but I was hoping for some insight beforehand.

I now have a birth control prescription, but was going to wait until my next, regular period came to start taking it when things hopefully become more regular.
