I took plan be about 2 weeks ago after intercourse. I started to get light spotting, then my period hit, pretty heavy, then I stopped bleeding. I had intercourse again about a week after & started bleeding minutes after. Waited a week & the same thing happened today except I just started bleeding during intercourse.
Is anyone able to answer this because I am very worried.

Dear Anon,

Thanks for reaching out to EmpowHer today.

Plan B can cause your periods to be irregular. The most common side effect of an emergency contraceptive is changing the woman’s cycle. This can be scary, (particularly if it causes a late period on someone who is concerned about pregnancy. )
Side effects may include changes in your period, nausea, lower abdominal pain, fatigue, headache, dizziness and breast tenderness. Some women may have changes in their period, a heavier or lighter next period, or a period that is early or late.

So it may take time for your cycle to normalize. If you are still concerned, because this seems to occur after sex, to ease your mind, you can always call your doctor or visit a planned parenthood.

I hope this helps.
