I took plan b about 3 weeks ago and i should be getting my period around the 8th. Ive been experiencing side effects such as spotting, and breast tenderness. The ive been spotting for about a week now sometimes it can be heavy and then light is that my period or just irregular spotting?
Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.com
I understand your concern.
Spotting does occur after taking Plan B in some women, however, it does not persist for a week like you mentioned.
You probably just got your period, since you mentioned the spotting can be light to heavy.
If it continues beyond 2 weeks, you will need to consult a gynecologist and proceed.
Hope this was helpful,
