I had my baby July 23 2017 I bled for a couple weeks and it kept getting lighter and lighter until it stopped during that time I was still having sex but took plan b multiple times after a few days I started bleeding really heavy again for about a week, I had sex at the very end of my bleeding the next day it completely stopped. He didn't finish though and prenatrated for a good 2-3 minutes. Could I be pregnant?
Taking a lot of Plan B as your birth control method is a great way to end up pregnant. It's not as reliable as regular hormonal birth control, & if you're already ovulating then it can't do anything for you. You'd need one of the other methods of emergency contraception; either the other emergency pill called Ulipristal Acetate or to have an IUD fitted by a doctor.
What all that Plan B hormone will do, is mess your menstrual cycle up for months, & there are no long term studies on what it can do if you take multiple doses close together. 1 dose is a HUGE dose of artificial hormone/chemicals for your body to deal with, never mind multiple doses.
If you're not pregnant, & there's chance that you definitely could be, then you are likely to get some strong hormonal side effects for quite some time. Your bleeding could be heavy & irregular. It's just a case of doing a pregnancy test when it will show an accurate results, & seeing how it affects you.
