Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

Your friend needs to stop using emergency birth control as a regualar method of birth contol, that's not what it is for and can cause side effects like headache, stomach pain, nausea and irregular bleeding.

Bleeding after she takes this medication is generally a sign she is not pregnant but not all manufacturer's guarantee this.

A pregnancy test can be taken 14-21 days after sex.
