Hi, I am having this exact same situation right now. Also had sex and took plan B the day after my period. I had some very light bleeding a few days after I took the pill, lasting maybe three days. Almost exactly a week later I started feeling a dull ache in my lower abdomen that has continued for 4 days now. Generally the pain is mild but is much worse when I walk or move around a lot.

I went to the Dr today (about 11 days after sex/taking plan b and about 4 days after pain started). They did bloodwork, urinalysis, xray, and pelvic exam and swabs. Everything came back normal but they prescribed an antibiotic just in case and gave me a referral for a CT scan to use in a few days if the antibiotics dont do the trick. They said CT scan was mainly to check for cysts as those won't show on an X-ray.

Was there any resolution for you? I'm still a little worried as the pain has persisted for days and doesn't seem to be getting better.

Note: I have used Plan B previously and did experience bleeding in the past (never pregnancy related), but NEVER had this sort of pain and cramping. It does not feel like menstrual pain. It feels more like severe condtipation or kidney stones or something like that.
