I and my girlfriend are 25 years of age, she had got her periods on 25th July and on 6th August we had unprotected sex we did for 2-3 times followed by an ipill which she had in 2 hours after the act. Again on 7th august we had protected sex 3 times with new condoms for each act and after each act she washed herself with water. Yesterday on 13th August she had bleeding flow while passing stool which was dark red in colour which she normally has durring her periods, she had pain like her periods at first which subsided in sometime and later she kept sanitary pad and had frequent bleeding of the same colour till evening with no pain. The colour of the blood was as it used to be durring her periods. She doesnt have any other symptoms of pregnancy like frequent urination, tender breasts or food cravings or fatigue. She has normal tiredness which she used to get daily. Is she pregnant?and yesterday 14th August was second day where she was getting bleeding where she found out few clots (say instead of 10 clots normally she got 2-3 clots), but since last night the flow stopped and next day again she had bleeding for some time. Should we wait till her due date of periods or should we go ahead with home pregnancy kit?

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for coming to us for help.

The bleeding was caused by taking an emergency contraceptive, in this case, I-pill. The pill was effective in preventing pregnancy. One side effect is a change in the menstrual cycle.

Your girlfriend may start her next period on time, or it can come earlier or later than expected. Flow could be lighter or heavier than normal.

No need to take a pregnancy test.

Thank you so much Maryann.

She also had a little sticky feeling along with a little blood which she says that normally after her periods end she gets this kind of discharge. And the next day she again had a little spotting just like how she had it durring her normal periods.

i am confused and worried. Please help
thank you
