Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The bleeding that she describes after taking ECP, could be withdrawal bleeding. The ECP taken should have helped in preventing pregnancy if she has taken it within 24-48 hours of unprotected intercourse (provided you were not sexually active after she has taken ECP). Wait and watch for her usual periods that may be delayed due to ECP use (ECP contains high dosages of hormones that can disrupt hormonal cycle causing period abnormalities). Look out for development of any new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. She should visit her doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance if she does not get her periods within 10 days of expected period dates, or if she gets abnormal bleeding. If pregnancy gets ruled out and if you are not ready for pregnancy, but 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 if you are not ready for pregnancy, and she should avoid repeat use of ECP.
Take care.
