Hello Anon

Bleeding after P2 does not start straight away.

Emergency contraceptives are up to 95% effective when taken as prescribed within the first 24 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.

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 as a result of taking emergency contraception.
Best,
Susan

Good morning. I'm really worried right now. I had unprotected sex 13th of February and I took the pill 14th feb morning. I started bleeding on 21st of February, little dark blood and as at yesterday march 3rd the blood was still coming but not heavy, today march 4th the blood has changed color to the normal menstrual red. I'm worried

Hello Anonymous,

Changes in the menstrual cycle are a side effect of Postinor 2. It has caused you to start your period earlier than expected and a heavier than normal flow.

My fiancee gave birth to our son February 2nd, we had sex last week Thursday, because she is likely to get pregnant again we had to get Postinor 2. She started experiencing serious stomach pains since Monday morning which was followed by heavy bleeding later that day's evening. The stomach pains stopped on Wednesday afternoon but the heavy blood discharge is still happening as at this morning. Should we be worried?

Hello Anonymous,

Yes, you should be worried. Her hormones have not yet returned to pre pregnancy levels. By taking Postinor 2, she "blasted" her body with a high dose of manmade progesterone.

Call her obstetrician today.

Regards,
Maryann
