Q. Period become irregular after taking Unwanted 72. What to do?


 

Hi doctor,

After taking Unwanted 72, my wife got down within five days. But, her menses started again after five days though her actual time of menses not yet come. Why?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Unwanted 72 is an emergency contraceptive pill containing high amount of progesterone. These medicines have a severe side effect of heavy or irregular bleeding. Your wife had the same side effect.

Please check her hemoglobin levels; she might turn anemic if she bleeds much. Continue taking iron pills. It might take one or two cycles to get her periods to get regular again.

So, preferably maintain a regular regime with condoms or oral contraceptive pills like Novelon, Ovral L, etc., rather than an emergency contraceptive. They are way safer.
