Thanks for writing to us.

The side effects you describe are common after taking the Plan B. The spotting and cramping can persist upto 3 - 5 days.

Also, the plan B can prepone or postpone your normal cycle upto a week or more sometimes.
If the symptoms are intolerable, or go beyond 3 - 5 days, consult your doctor.

Hope this answers your query. Let me know if you need clarification.

Take care
