This is bleeding from the medication and indicates you are not pregnant.

There is no need to take another dose, it won't do anything.
Just relax, there is no point in getting stressed.

If you have further concerns, please contact your doctor as we have helped you to the best of our ability and are simply repeating information.

Hello anslem

Thank you for writing.

If you don't want to get pregnant you're going to have to stop having unprotected sex, it's as simple as that.
However, EC is very effective. Emergency contraceptives are up to 95% effective when taken as prescribed within the first 24 hours and up to 90% effective if taken within 72 hours, so the risk is very small. It works by preventing ovulation and stopping a pregnancy from starting. It is not an abortion pill. It prevents a pregnancy, it does not end one. Side effects can include stomach aches, headaches, breast pain, nausea and a general feeling of being unwell.
The more frequently they are taken, the more likely a woman is to have side effects and an irregular cycle. They should be taken only for emergencies, not used as a method of birth control.
Symptoms usually start 2-7 days after taking the medication and may or may not include bleeding or spotting. Not all women get symptoms. Some get many, or a few, or none. If a woman doesn’t get her next period within a week of it’s expected date, a pregnancy test may be necessary although the risk is very low. Periods can often be delayed or longer/shorter as a result of taking emergency contraception. We cannot predict this for our readers in terms of length of delays. We cannot predict if it will work for any individual woman. Each women is different. Periods should get back to normal by the second cycle after.
