I took the plan b pill a week ago. I'm having some slight bleeding. Is this usual?

Me and my boyfriend had sex the day my period was over. Unfortunately the condom slipped off when he came. I freaked out and didn't want any chance of getting pregnant so i took the pill probably about 2 hour after having sex with him. The thing is i don't have regular periods. I get mine about once every 3 to 4 months ( I'm not on birth control) and seeing that i just had my period before having sex i'm kind of concerned about this slight bleeding. I'm having a little cramping. Overall i just want to know if everything is ok. I only go to the doctor about once a year i'm 20 and have never seen a gynecologist or have had a pap mere . Ahh help me!

Hello, and thank you for sharing your question.  

Taking the pill quickly was the best thing you could have done under the circumstances.  Plan B is 95% effective when taken within 24 hours of having intercourse so your chances of still getting pregnant are very low.

Since your periods are generally irregular it would be hard to tell whether or not you are pregnant from your period alone.  The best thing I can suggest is that you wait a few weeks and then take a pregnancy test.  The test will most likely be negative, however it is the best way of being certain whether or not you are pregnant.

I hope this helps.  Let us know if you have any more questions.
