Hi! I had my period Dec 25-28. I then had intercourse XXXXXXX 3rd and it was sort of getting close to my ovulation date, so I took plan b since we had been a little careless. I've taken it before with no side effects, but this time I am know bleeding again a week after taking the pill. It's like a full on period. Does this mean that I will be ovulating again? Or is it just a side effect? I like to keep track of my ovulation and does this screw it all up?
