... there was no bleeding. We found out the condom broke and I took Plan B about 10 hours later because all the pharmacy’s were closed (it was about 2am in the morning). After taking Plan B I was fine for a couple of days but I realized On the 5th day I was spotting like a brownish reddish color and today being the 6th day I am bleeding as if I’m on my period. Is this normal? I just had my period and I’m confused as to how I’m bleeding again.
Yes, that's common. Plan B is a huge dose of artificial hormone for your body to deal with. You can get any symptoms that you'd get from other hormonal events in your body, such as a period or pregnancy.
Plan B is less reliable than regular hormonal birth control. As you weren't too near to your ovulation, it will hopefully do its job, which is to delay ovulation until the sperm leaves your body. There's no way of knowing though. Not until you can do a pregnancy test when your period would normally be due.
If you'd been a few days later, which would be closer to your ovulation, you would have needed to go for one of the other methods of emergency contraception.
You won't know what is a period, & what is Plan B, for a month or two, & also won't know when you're ovulating, if you rely on apps/websites giving you a rough guide.
