Birth Control Answer A38257
Welcome to ehealthforum,
If she was during her fertile days/close to ovulation time and if pre-cum or semen has come in contact with vagina, chances of pregnancy are possible. If she has taken the emergency contraception within 48 hours of unprotected intercourse/sexual contact, it should help in preventing pregnancy (provided you were not sexually active without protection after taking it). The withdrawal bleeding usually occurs within 5-7 days of taking the emergency contraception (which could be the cause for the abnormal bleeding she experienced after ECP intake). Since the emergency contraceptives contain high doses of hormones, these can disrupt the normal hormonal and period pattern causing period/bleeding abnormalities and appearance of new symptoms. Wait and watch for her next periods which can be delayed. She should visit her doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation if periods are missed or abnormal, or if she suspects chances of pregnancy. If pregnancy gets ruled out and if you intend to remain sexually active, you should consider getting her started on suitable regular birth control measures to be protected (after her periods). She should be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact and avoid repeated use of emergency contraception.
Take care.
