Hello Anonymous,

The second bleeding would not be like your actual period because it is withdrawal bleeding, which is bleeding that happens between periods and is caused by taking the emergency contraceptive.

Hello Anonymous,

No, you are definitely not pregnant. However, you did not need to take an emergency contraceptive and in doing so, have seriously upset the hormone levels that regulate the menstrual cycle.

You are at risk for becoming pregnant when you have unprotected intercourse at the time of ovulation. In general, one of your ovaries releases a mature egg about 14 days following the last day of your last menstrual period.

Since you were on the last day of your period, you were not ovulating.

Lower abdominal pain is a reported side effect of an emergency contraceptive.
