Hi Ruby

Thanks for your question!

You did not finish your post but I think I understand what you are asking - please correct me if I'm wrong.

I am unsure of why your doctor gave you Next Choice to take since this is a very large emergency dose of birth control taken to avoid pregnancy after having unprotected sex.

One of the effects of Next Choice is bleeding but some women don't bleed at all and it's not really a "period" - it's a side effect of the medication.

You need to ask your doctor why he placed you on a dose of emergency birth control. A 3 day period is normal for some women and doesn't need to be "fixed".

Please ask your doctor why he is asking you to do this so you have a better understanding of what's going on.
