Birth Control/Plan b pill


skipped period and had unprotected sex about a week after I was supposed to start. did not ejaculate in me and took the plan b pill. now I have light spotting. should I be worried about being pregnant?

Probably not.  The spotting is most likely the result of skipping your period and then taking plan b, either of which can result in spotting.

Pregnancy is pretty unlikely both because he didn't ejaculate plus you took plan b.  Spotting is rarely the first sign of pregnancy.  To be sure, wait about 14 days after sex and do a first morning pregnancy test.
