How to confirm pregnancy?

Break through bleeding: My girlfriend had taken the Plan B Pill 2 weeks ago and got her period. Everything was fine this week and last week (when she was on her period) and then today she told me that after working out she didnt feel well and called me later on that there was blood mixed with discharge after going to the bathroom. The reason why she tool the Plan B earlier was because there was contact between my penis and vagina, but there was no intercourse. I dont understand whats going on here and I highly doubt that she can be pregnant. If you could offer some help/ advice as to whats going on, it would be greatly appreciated

Hello dear,
I understand your concern.
In my opinion the blood admixed with mucous discharge might the effect of plan B.
Usually there is scope for pregnancy when semen is ejaculated inside or around the vagina during the fertile period.
Just touching of genitals will not result in pregnancy.
So actually the plan B was not required.
But anyways the bleeding is not related to pregnancy.
The plan B is associated with sideeffects like irregular bleeding ,heavy bleeding during the periods etc.
So the blood admixed with mucus discharge is mostly the effect of plan B.
No need of any intervention it will subside on its own.
Relax.There cannot be any pregnancy.
Hope this helps.
Best regards...Dr.Srilatha
