Plan B



I ended my period about a week ago. I had sexual intercourse and took plan B like an hour later. About a week later, I have had spotting and then what seems to be a peroid that is really early. Is this normal?


Emergency contraception can cause spotting or an alteration in the timing of the next menstrual period. If you have any concern you are already pregnant, you should perform a pregnancy test.
