Am I pregnant?

I had unprotected sec on December 2 but I wasn't ovulating. We kept on worrying so to be on the safe side I took postinor 2 near the 72 hour mark on December 5. We got bit frisky again and ended up having sex a few hours after I took the first pill. All seemed well until last week Friday (December 12) I started to bleed. I thought it was my period as the leaflet said it may cause irregular period but now its December 19 and I am still bleeding although its not light and I'm having minimal abdominal pain and worrying a lot. Should I just relax and wait for the bleeding to stop or see a doctor immediately?

Hi killerbee86,

Thank you for sharing your question. I am not sure why your post showed up restricted, but I will look into it.

In the meantime, to address your concerns postinor2 can cause your period to come early or late and can be very irregular just as the label suggests. So basically you have been bleeding for 7 days and how heavy is it??

Light cramping is ok, but if it worsens then I would see a doctor. You can talk to the pharmacist for peace of mind, but unfortunately I think the symptoms you are having is just from the high level of hormones in the pill.

It can take 2-3 cycles to get back to a normal period. Since you are bleeding, you are not pregnant, so don't worry about that. If the bleeding goes on much longer or gets heavier or you see any clotting, then I would go to the doctor.

Try not to worry too much-I hope this helps. When in doubt talk to your mom or an adult that you trust or call your doctor.

I hope this helps!
