Gynecology

Plan B

07/16/2008

Question:

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?

Answer:

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.
