Hi Anon,

Thank you for reaching out to the EmpowHER community with your question about P2.

It is very common that Postinor-2, aka P2 can change your pattern of menstrual bleeding. There may also be some irregular vaginal bleeding or spotting until your next period. A dark, thick bloody discharge is completely normal and is a sign that the pill did it's job :-) No need to worry.

It's going to take a couple cycles for your body to get back to normal.  

Here is a link from the EmpowHER community with info on side effects of the Emergency Contraception Pill. https://www.empowher.com/community/ask/what-are-side-effects-emergency-contraceptives-such-plan-b-and-next-choice

Does this help?
