Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The bleeding she experienced within 7-10 days of taking the emergency contraception could be the withdrawal bleeding that could indicate that the pill has worked. Since it contains high dosages of hormones, it can cause period pattern changes and new symptoms. The ECP taken should help in preventing pregnancy if she has taken it within 48 hours of unprotected intercourse (provided you were not sexually active after she has taken ECP). Wait and watch for her periods that may be delayed due to ECP use. 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.
