Welcome to ehealthforum,
Being sexually active after she finished with her periods can put her at risk for pregnancy. 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). The bleeding she experienced within few days of taking ECP could be the withdrawal bleeding indicating that the pill has worked. Wait and watch for her periods that may be delayed due to ECP use. To arrive at the next expected period date, count the usual menstrual cycle length starting with first day of the last menstrual bleeding. 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 further unprotected sexual contact if you are not ready for pregnancy.
Take care.
