I had my periods three and a half weeks back and had unprotected sex two weeks back. I also took an I-pill after sex. I have had light bleeding for a day with abdominal pain. Is this normal? For how many days will it continue? What should I do next if it does not stop?
I understand your concern. It is called withdrawal bleeding and is occurring due to the tablet I-pill (Levonorgestrel). The bleeding will eventually stop like your regular cycles or might take a few more days. You can wait for seven days and get back to me if it does not stop even after that so that I can help you with the next step. Also, I suggest you use a hot pad on the stomach or take tablet Meftal Spas (Dicyclomine 10 mg and Mefenamic Acid 250 mg) to relieve abdominal pain. There is nothing to worry about.
I hope this helps.
Thank you for your answer.
