Plan B, a week after, no bleeding.
An_254351 posted:
Hello board. I have taken Plan B one other time in my life years ago, and after about a week I did have some light bleeding, but nothing like a period. I know that's not considered your period.

This time when I took Plan B, it's been a week since I took it and I have had bloating, cramps, etc. now sore breasts, all symptoms I get when I'm about to start my period, however nothing. I keep thinking it's going to start but nothing occurs.

This worries me only because I have experienced that spotting / bleeding before with this medication and now it's not having the same side effect. Just wondering how concerned I should be. I will be taking a pregnancy test as soon as I can, my period still isn't due for another 12 days.

Thanks everyone.

The side effects you get with Plan B depend mainly on where you are in your cycle when you take it. The chances are you are not at the same point as you were the last time hence the different symptoms.
