Hi Anon,

Thank you for reaching out to the EmpowHER community with your concerns.

Taking an emergency contraception can lead to irregular periods, either "breakthrough bleeding" (bleeding in between periods), or it can even delay a period. It's not uncommon to start bleeding again.

Just as an FYI, research says that emergency contraception is about 91% effective so you always run the risk of pregnancy even with the ipill. Please consider a safer form of birth control and use a condom every time. Emergency contraception does not protect against STD's.

EmpowHER has a whole section dedicated to Birth Control Facts, please take a look and choose a method that is best for you. https://www.empowher.com/media/reference/birth-control-center
