Around November of last year I had taken plan b about 4 hours after a scare had occurred (its important to note that i had not even had sex). I got the hormonal bleeding that lasted 3 days (did not count this as my real period), and then got my real period that was extremely late (by about 3 weeks) and it was heavy flow for about 6-7 days. Then about month later my period was due on Christmas, my period was late again by about 7 days and i got it on the 2nd of January, and that was heavy bleeding for about 7 days as well. My tracker said i was due on the 29th of January however, i have not felt any cramps (like usually do before my period) i have only had the normal discharge but also brown discharge too... I have read that brown discharge could be a sign im pregnant, i have had 3 of my periods since i took the pill and have even abstained from having sex since (im still a virgin)? I still haven't had my period yet, is plan b still affecting me or could i be pregnant?
I'm sure you're not pregnant. Do a pregnancy test to put your mind at rest.
Some women find their periods are disturbed for months after taking Plan b, especially if they were irregular before hand.
If you want to rebalance your hormones, you can use agnus castus, a herbal remedy, so long as you aren't using hormonal birth control, as they would work against each other. I use the A Vogel brand, & buy it from Amazon. It's very good quality.
Ladies; Yes after the Plan B it can mess up your periods and lots of other things for several months so you really don't have to worry. And normally the brown and red mix blood well even be a bit thicker etc And as said the brown is from old blood but normally it well come shortly after taking the plan b and that is not your normal period you well have another and even the next is in most cases later than normal. If in dought, at all take a pregnancy test. BUT PBJ YOU should have nothing to worry about if your saying your a virgin and have never had sex if your problems keep up you should see the doctor you might need a different type of pill or just one to start your period. Best of luck the plan B is good when you need it but it has lots of gifts that keep on giving Lol have a good weekend.
Both of you PBJ and the other ladies on here about the plan B just wanted to let you know to please bookmark this site this is one of the best places on the web and I have been to many but there are such great people here that we have all been through the same stuff, Well wait I have never taken the plan B but I have never missed my period. lol But always great people and answers here so feel free to come back and post anytime. excuse once in a while someone sounds like they got up on the wrong side of the bed but that happens anywhere just feel at home here.

Thank you all for your responses and help! It means so much to me! I looked up some agnus castus but the A Vogel brand is British and is a BIT to expensive for me to ship here in the states. Is there any alternative that might be similar? I haven't had my period yet and it's not worrying me anymore but its very annoying :/.
