Welcome to ehealthforum,
The nausea, vaginal bleeding and dizziness could be attributed to the emergency contraceptive pill used. Withdrawal bleeding usually occurs within 5-7 days of taking the ECP indicating that it has been effective (provided you did not have further unprotected intercourse after taking the ECP). Wait and watch for your periods which can be delayed due to the hormonal changes affected by the high hormonal dosage contained in ECP. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance.
If pregnancy gets ruled out, and if you are not ready for pregnancy, but intend to remain sexually active, you should consider visiting your gynecologist to get started on suitable regular birth control measures to be protected (after your periods). Be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact and avoid repeat use of ECP. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
