Had unprotected sex on Aug 31/sept 1 between 3-5am and took plan b one step 7-9 hours later. On sept 3rd one small single flake of red blood. On 4th clear discharge in am and what I thought to be the beginning of my period that evening, as it was bright red, and took up about 2.5 inches of toilet paper. The 5th I had really bad cramps on lower leftside of abdomen, took ibuprofen, and cramps went away... but no period... and only light brown discharge. I'm not nor have ever been on any birth control. Having cramps on and off all day today but still only light to dark brown discharge. Its not possible to get pregnant only 6 days max after sex... is it? That would mean fertilization, and implantation... not to mention travel time... could that even be possible?! As far as I knew egg had to form into a blastocyst before implantation, which takes a few days. So please help! Really freaked! Hoping to see my period this month for once in my life! :/
Plan b one step or something else?

Also other then the bright red blood that I thought might have been my period, the brownish discharge had only been in very small amounts, and only when I wipe :/
Plan B is hard on the body. You get all kinds of strange bleeding. You also get symptoms that are like pregnancy. Why don't you use regular birth control?
6 days is long enough for implantation but more than likely it is just Plan b messing you up. You took it within plenty of time. It often causes some amount of bleeding around a week later (give or take days), but not always, and the next period is generally delayed then. Once you are at least a week late for your next scheduled period you can go ahead and test. if it is negative, you can rest fairly assured that it is just the Plan b and your cycle should return to normal in the next moth or two. Binge drinking can lead to all kind of unsafe choices, besides being bad for your body. Having unsafe sex, be it with men or women, can be dangerous. Woman to woman sex can transmit STD's the same as woman to man sex. One needs to keep a clear enough head to make healthy decisions when it comes to sex. Be careful when binge drinking or best yet, is to avoid bingeing altogether.
