My girlfriend and I had unprotected sex about 3 weeks ago. She started to bleed a little before she took plan b (about 8 hours after the sex) which we thought maybe was her period, but she took the pill anyways just to be safe. The bleeding (very light) continued for about 2 days and then stopped. After that, she started bleeding again about two days later but much heavier than before (typical period amount) for about 7 days. Now, about two weeks after that bleeding stopped, she is having some brown spotting, but her period has not come yet. The main question I have is, is the bleeding she experienced after taking plan b a side effect or her period? and if so, is there a chance she could still be pregnant?
