Hi, Anon.

Thank you for your post.

Emergency contraception is not to be used as a regular form birth control and should be taken as directed. Bleeding indicates it was effective.

Emergency contraceptives are up to 95% effective when taken as prescribed within the first 24 hours, so the risk is very small. 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. If you don’t get your next period within a week or so of its expected date, a pregnancy test is recommended. It can cause your period to be early or late, have a lighter or a heavier flow. If you have any concerns, see your doctor.
