Hi Maryann,
I've read several of your responses to others and found them very informative so first off, thank you.
I did want to reach out with a question of my own- I see that you've said a number of times that emergency contraceptive is not necessary while on your period (day 3 of my cycle- April 9th early a.m.) I panicked after a mistake and took plan b one step anyway (never taken before), within 24 hours.
For about a day after I felt like my period had stopped which made me unsure, but the next day and currently I have light pink/brownish spotting, noticeably during urination. Did I put myself at risk by taking the Plan B while technically ON my period? Thanks in advance!
