I had taken plan b one step about 5 day ago (Nov. 9) around 10 am. This morning around the same time (Nov. 14) I felt a sharp cramping pain and saw a bit of spotting. It was light at first but then it got slightly heavier, filling a whole panty liner and looking dark brown with a small hint of red, I think. It's slowly dying down the same day but the cramping is still kinda there and sharp. Is this considered normal after taking the pill?
I'm spotting about a day or so before my estimated ovulation day after taking a contraceptive pill?

Update: it started back up again, more darker brown, and I'm changing panty liners a bit more than I think I should. It's not enough for a pad but it's a bit much for me to change it almost frequently
If you're only due to ovulate now, then Plan B should have had time to delay it. That's how Plan B works.
The spotting can be normal with Plan B, & can increase to even heavy bleeding sometimes.
You may also get any other symptoms that you might get with a period or pregnancy, & your period itself may not be on time.
