I had unprotected sex on Dec 9th. He pulled out before ejaculating and cleaned up. A couple hours later had intercourse again for a little bit, though this time he didn't ejeculate at all. About 10-12 hours later I took Plan B (1.5 mg levonogestrel). I've never been on birth control and this is the first time I use Plan B.
I didn't have any immediate side effects til about 3 days later (from Dec 12-14). Since then I've had some cramping, dull aches near my ovaries, my lower abdomen was very bloated for a couple days, and lower back pain. I also had the sensation of about to get my period, when I feel as if the blood is starting to slide down my vagina.
Tonight Dec 17 (8 days after intercourse) I noticed some light bleeding when I wiped myself in the bathroom. It was light colored and a small amount. I tried wiping again and after awhile got only a little bit more, but this time a brownish color and thick - as if it was discharge mixed with a little blood.
I guess my question is, is this consistent with implantation bleeding or could it be the Pill? It seems too late to be the effect of the pill and too soon to be my period (which should be another 11 days away). But maybe I was affected by it more than usual since my body is not used to birth control?
Anyone have a similar experience with emergency contraception, particularly around the time of ovulation?
Thank you for reading.
UPDATE: 23/12/16 The bleeding continued (6 days and counting) and got heavier, so appears not to be implantation bleeding but instead a result of the morning after pill (possibly an early period).
