I ended my period march 7 on the 12 I took Plan B. Six days later I bled for about three days. Does this mean it worked ? I was expecting my regular period to come today - April 1. I have cramps and my boobs are swollen but I am so paranoid. If I bled after the pill does it mean it worked? Someone please help .
It just means you took a huge dose of artificial hormone. Symptoms of that.
Plan B may not have been the best form of emergency contraception for you, because of the point you were at in your cycle. You'd likely have been better to use one of the other 2 forms, that have more of a chance of preventing pregnancy when you are around your fertile time of the month (ovulation).
Hopefully you'll have been in time for Plan to work, but do a pregnancy test to be sure.
