It does not sound like you have any reason to be worried.

Withdrawal bleeding happens around this time. I do not know why the ipill manufacturer does not tell women to expect this 5 to 7 days after taking it. almost all women will get it in that time frame. Withdrawal bleeding is the period that women on the pill get. It is caused by the pill hormones withdrawing from your body (ipill is just a very very strong birth control pill).

Your next few cycles my be disturbed. They may be late, early or even absent. Take a pregnancy test at the time your next period should have ended, if it does not come on time. Just to make sure.

Best of luck!

It will be in the 2 to 7 days range. It is not menstruation so if you know your body very well, you may notice a slightly different smell, texture and color. Menstruation flow consists of blood and your broken down uterus lining tissue. This withdrawal bleeding is mostly blood with a bit of the lining tissue.

Hi again, i am due of my periods and i still dont feel anything, except that i have white / yellow thick sticky substance oozing out since a few days and feel bad in mouth at times. i also have slight abdominal pain at times. Is it just due to the pill or something is wrong?

Hi,I need a help here,my girlfriend having her period on 31st august 2013 and end it on 4th September 2013. On 5th September,we had a protected sex and I EJACULATED INSIDE HER VAGINA BUT STILL IN THE CONDOM. For safety measure,she took postinor 2 but only A PILL,NOT TWO. On 9th September,WE had a protected sex again but this time I ejaculated OUTSIDE and she did not take postinor 2. On 10th September,she had a vaginal bleeding or maybe I could say period I'm not sure and the bleeding stop on 12th September. My questions are:

1) The bleeding is a sign of implantation bleeding or vaginal bleeding or a period?
2) Should both of us be worried whether she will get pregnant or not?
3) When she will get her next period if that bleeding is not a period?
4) Since when we should count her next cycle? On the day she end her period or the day she end the bleeding? Please reply me as soon as possible as I'm so worried of her.

It can be a common side effect that you get during the first few cycles of starting the pill. It is called breakthrough bleeding. Your doctor can try to stop it, but normally will ask you to wait a while to see if it will stop by itself. If it goes on formorethan than 14 days,speak to your doctor.

Remember to take an iron supplementent (but do not overdose) while this is happening.

@kristigraham i'm hoping you can help...my fiance fingered me on nov 8th and insisted he had no cum on his fingers...but just to be sure I took postinor 2 on nov 10th. I didn't complete the dose (only took 0.75mg) because my mom said I shouldn't need it as my fianc and I didn't have sex. My period actually had ended on nov 6th but on nov 17th it began again. This time is it implantation spotting or period? It is too heavy for spotting but it is slightly lighter than my usually-heavy periods. I really hope i'm not pregnant as my fianc and will only marry next year Sad

It is actually withdrawal bleeding from the Postinor. It happens for most women about 7 days after taking it. It is a sign that the Postinor hormones are leaving your body. (This is the same bleeding a woman on birth control pills gets when she reaches the inactive week).

Expect your next 2 cycles to be a bit disturbed due to hormones.

It was withdrawal bleeding that normally occurs about 7 days after taking the emergency contraceptive. It does not have any meaning. It is an automatic reaction of your body to the hormones leaving your system.

It is very very very very unlikely that you will get pregnant without him ejaculating inside you.

Take care!

I see, thanks so much! But isn't withdrawal bleeding not supposed to happen as I only took half a dose of Postinor? How long is it supposed to last btw? I'm starting to think it might be my menses, it's so heavy!

Withdrawal bleeding can happen from as little as one normal birth control pill. And Postinor is much stronger than one normal pill.

Your flow an be like a normal period, heavier or lighter. It lasts a few days.

Depending on when you expected your period,it can certainly be that as well. Did you get your normal signs that it was coming?

Anyways, it does not sound like you have anything to be worried about. You just need to deal with the side effects of the Postinor. That can be stressful, so try to relax.

I did have fatigue and mood swings a few days prior to the bleeding, but I put it down to the postinor's side effects. It's quite hard to say whether i'm having withdrawal bleeding or my menses as I never get cramps. But it's too early for my menses, my period last began on October 31st.

Yeah, it's getting really heavy now, but I shouldn't need a doctor should I? unless the bleeding lasts more than a week?

Thanks, you've been so helpful and comforting. My fianc and I agreed sex would wait until we're married. Personally, worrying about my wedding preparations is easier than this!

I'm sorry @kristigraham...but i'm literally panicking here...it's been about 30 days since my last bleeding (which I still do not know whether it's withdrawal bleeding or an early period) & my period still isn't here this month!! Sad I have very heavy whitish-transparent vaginal discharge day and night for about a week now, and on-off fever...could I possibly be pregnant? My fiance and I are totally not ready to be parents... :'(

The only way to make sure is with a pregnancy test. It is however highly unlikely that you are pregnant. It takes more than a bit of semen on a finger to make you pregnant, and the chances of actually transferring semen into your vagina with his finger is very small, unless he deliberately tries to do that.

The pill will cause withdrawal bleeding in the week following taking it, and it will mess with your cycle for about 2 month as - that is how it prevents pregnancy.

It is most likely just withdrawal bleeding.

You should really make other plans for birth control. The Postinor is not 100% effective, and especially when you are most fertile just before you ovulate. So unless you do not mind ending up pregnant, but are not trying to get pregnant, you should try something else.

Best of luck!
