Q: 

I had unprotected sex on 31st July and my boyfriend came inside me so I took unwanted 72 (emergency contraceptive). I didn't have any side effects but next week we again had unprotected sex and he came inside so I took ipill. My period is due on 18th Aug.

Hello again
I just started bleeding actually I want to know if that's vagibal bleesing because of ipill(emergency contraceptive) or my periods?
And in case it is vaginal bleeding does it mean that I'm not pregnant?

It could be your period or side effect bleeding - it doesn't matter, blood is blood in this case. This is confirmation you're not pregnant. Your next period could be irregular. If you still have concerns, take a test, we have helped about all we can based on what we know.

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

This medication comes with a lot of information so you need to read through it to know more or contact the manufacturer's website. Your period may be delayed due to misuse of this medication. If you don't get your next period within 4 weeks of when you last had sex, you can take a pregnancy test.
Best,
Susan

Hello again

A pregnancy test is accurate about 14-21 days after sex.
Best,
