Is it normal to bleed after taking Plan B One-Step?

ANSWER

If you take Plan B One-Step, you may have some unexpected bleeding. It should go away by the time of your next period. However, it is possible that Plan B One-Step may cause your next period to be heavier or lighter than usual. It may also come earlier or later than is normal for you. If you don't get your period within three weeks, get a pregnancy test to make sure you're not pregnant.
