Hi doctor,

I had unprotected sex on the fourth day of my periods and I took a contraceptive pill within half an hour. Now, I am bleeding after seven days from the day I had taken the pill. Are there any chances of pregnancy? Please explain me.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • The extra bleeding could be due to the pill. However, it would depend on the pill you took.
  • If you have taken an emergency contraceptive pill, then yes, that would be the reason of excessive bleeding.
  • However, if you have taken a normal contraceptive pill, then it will not protect you against pregnancy.
  • Though your details are not complete, I need further details to guide you better. So, please give further details.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • In that case there is no chance of pregnancyUnwanted 72 is an emergency contraceptive pill and would protect from any pregnancy.
  • Since you took the pill while you were on your period, it resulted in the heavy bleeding.
  • Do not worry; it will stop in another two to three days. However, if it does not stop, then let me know.
  • Any continuous bleeding of so many days might need medicines to stop the bleeding.
