So I am really worried about my girlfriend and i found this website, please help me.
Me and my girlfriend had sex but condom failed, so we decided to get next step.
Her period came within a week after taking NextChoice, however it's been 8 days and the amount of her period is not decreasing at all, she told me the amount is more than usual.
Is this normal?? Should I bring her to a doctor?? Please help me I am worried for her

Hi Anonymous,
Thank you for your question and welcome to EmpowHer. It is common to have irregular periods after taking Plan B/Next Choice although if you are concerned, you should contact your physician. You will certainly experience irregular periods for the next couple cycles and since every woman's experience may be different, it would not hurt following up with your doctor.

Good luck and keep us posted.

In my opinion and experience from when i had a cyst that ruptured, it's always a good idea to go to the doctor if you are bleeding a lot. If the bleeding hasn't slowed down and is a lot (like she has to change her tampon or pad every hour or so) then i think she should go to the doctor. Also, if she's not on birth control, i think she should consider it because I use to bleed a lot monthly and birth control definitely helped decrease the amount I was bleeding every month.
