I had unprotected sex 2nd and 3rd days after my period and I took Postinor 2 the 3rd day. A week later, I bled like it was my period, though it was light and the colour was really dark. Should I be scared?

Hi Anon

Thank you for your post!

Emergency contraceptives are up to 95% effective when taken as prescribed within the first 24 hours and up to 90% effective if taken within 72 hours, so the risk is very small. It works by preventing ovulation and stopping a pregnancy from starting. It is not an abortion pill. It prevents a pregnancy, it does not end one. Side effects can include stomach aches, headaches, nausea and a general feeling of being unwell.

The more frequently they are taken, the more likely a woman is to have side effects and an irregular cycle. They should be taken only for emergencies, not used as a method of birth control.
Symptoms usually start 2-7 days after taking the medication and may or may not include bleeding or spotting. Not all women get symptoms. Some get many, or a few, or none. If a woman doesn’t get her next period within a week of it’s expected date, a pregnancy test may be necessary although the risk is very low. Periods can often be delayed or longer/shorter as a result of taking emergency contraception. They should get back to normal by the second cycle after.

I had my period two weeks ago before week 1
Week 1: me and bf touched our genitals but he didn't cum, fingered me with his clean hand. Out of precaution i took p2.
Week 2. Started withdrawal bleeding for 6 days with cramps.
Week 5. Had brown spotting that lasted for 4 days
week 8. Had my period flow with cramps
Recently had tired and headaches due to stress and bad sleeping schedule.
What's wrong? Am i pregnant? I have no symptoms.

I had withdrawal bleeding 6 days after my sexual encounter (lasted for 6 days) , approx 3 weeks later i had brown spotting ( lasted for 4-5 days ), 2.5 weeks after the spotting i had my full period with cramps ( lasted for 6 days) . Am I pregnant? Please i'm worried.
I've also been having slight headaches and fatigue but i think it's due to my stress, what's happening? Please help me
