I had sex last 19th of january, then i took postinor-2 on the 22nd. After 6 days i started to have bleeding. Is it the effect of the postinor that i took? Because i supposed to have my menstration on the 6th of february.

Hello and thank you for sharing your question.

One of the common side effects of postinor 2 is breakthrough bleeding.  This is normal and no cause for alarm.  Your period will return to normal soon.

In the future, it is important for you to know, that positron 2 must be taken within the first 24 hours after having intercourse in order to be fully effective.  Its effectiveness drops to 58% when taken 48 to 72 hours later.

So in the future try to take it within 24 hours.

But the bleeding lasted for only 3 days and the flow is not that heavy. Couldn't it be the implantation bleeding? Should I be worried? Thanks for your kind response.

You should definitely not be worried.  The EC caused the bleeding.  Wait it out and you will see your period return to normal soon.
