Plan B is a massive does of hormone. It really takes your body a good few weeks to sort itself out.
You should find that the heavy bleeding stops within the next couple of days, & then you are likely to get your period, which may be a week or so later than normal. Alternatively, if your period was due quite close to when you took the Plan B, you may find that these last 8 days have been a combination of bleeding from Plan B & your period.
If the heavy bleeding goes on longer than a couple of weeks, then you may need to see your doctor, to ensure you don't become anaemic, & to possibly be given something to stop the bleeding. In most circumstances, you should find that this bleeding stops but that it may take another period/cycle before your body gets back to normal.
Plan B made me really hormonal, too. I felt really depressed for a couple of weeks, so take it easy.
