User Profile
My gf had periods on 12th of May which lasted only for 2days due to her abortion in April. I had sex with her on 1st June. I did not ejaculate inside of her. Still, i gave her an ECP within 24hours, and she had her period on 12th June which also lasted for 2days. They were so heavy that she had to use 2 whole Ultra size pads on the 1st day and 1whole pad on the 2nd day. The blood was red and no clots. Is there any chance that it was implantation bleeding? She says it was just like her regular period.. and that they occured heavier than her previous periods. Her preg test taken on 7th June came negative. She has no symptoms till now either. But im just worried.. Please reply asap.

Birth Control Answer A36803
Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Emergency contraceptive pills are to be used only for emergency, and are not for regular use to prevent pregnancy with repeat intercourse. Repeat use is also not recommended since it can affect future pregnancy chances. 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 may not occur if taken close to period). Since they contain high dosage of hormones, they can disrupt the normal hormonal and period pattern causing period/bleeding abnormalities and appearance of new symptoms (that can at times mimic pregnancy 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.
