Do you mind if I ask why you are so worried about it? Do u have a tiny baby at home already? My advice is be calm. You'll get through it pregnant or not! Take a test and take it easy! Life is good. Babies are blessings!

I went through the same thing with my 3rd child. Had what I thought was my period for a full week. I also took plan b as well the day it happened. Take a pee test and you can also go to planned parenthood for a free test. Trust me I know what you are going through. Good luck.

Hallo Christacvs. Not what you want to know, but yes, I have been through exactly the same symptoms when I fell pregnant with my first child.



So the possibility is that you are pregnant, and that the spotting was when the implantation happened. But not all spotting, leads to pregnancy, as I have had spotting also in stead of menstruation, and I didn't fell pregnant then (or lost the baby before the next menstrual - which also happens more often than women know.



So wait out the week, and then do the test. In the mean time, look after yourself as though you could be pregnant.

So I'm taking this direct from the plan B website: http://www.planb.ca/what.html

"After you’ve taken plan B, you should get your next period at the expected time, or a few days early or late. You may experience spotting a few days after taking plan B."

"If your period is over a week late, or you haven’t had a period within three weeks of taking plan B, it is possible that you’re pregnant. Talk to your doctor and have a pregnancy test done."

I would wait until you are a week late, then take a home pregnancy test. If it comes out negative but you still think you are pregnant then schedule a doctors appointment and have them draw blood to test for the pregnancy hormone.

My understanding is that the plan B pill is a massive dose of estrogen to prevent implantation. (sort of like taking 8 birth control pills at a time). Of course your body will go into shock and take a little while to get back to normal. The # 1 side effect is sore breasts and a bit of weight gain and water retention. I wouldn't worry too much. Take a test in a couple of weeks to be sure.

buy one of the double home pregnancy tests. Take the first one now and the second in a week if the first is negative. If you're freaking out go do something about it, i know it's scary but stressing isn't going to help!

Go to the Dr theres a very real chance that you are pregnant. I had spotting like your describing with all three of my children. Also I had breast tenderness and swelling as early as 3 weeks which was why I went to the Dr and had a blood test done and they were all positive.

Take a home pregnancy test then make the appt with your dr anyway just to be sure, if it says positive then let the dr know maybe they can pull you in sooner especially if you don't plan on keeping the baby.

Thank you ladies, but I am still having aching breast even though im not on my menstral!!!! im freaking out and dont want to take a test because it has only been three weeks since it happened so I know a blood hpt will not show accurate results!!!! I called the doctor and they told me to give it to the end of the week then take a test. I would jus like to know if anyone else has been through anything the same as I HAVE! I have never spotted before so I dont know the difference between spotting and a light period. Im jus hoping what im thinking is a lite period isnt jus spotting and that i havent had my menstral yet?????

The spotting could either be menstrual or implantation spotting the only way to know is to take a pregnancy test or go to your doctor and take a blood test which is way more reliable than those pee tests.

I would wait until your period is at least 7 days overdue, then take a pregnancy test. If you are really worried you can have your doctor do a test and/or physical exam - they will be able to tell if you are pregnant with the physical exam because your cervix will be closed.
