I have a regular cycle of 28 to 30 days. I had I-pill on the third day of the period. At that time I was having minor bleeding and I had unprotected sex but after that I took I-pill within 10 hours. After two days my periods stopped. Now, I am worried because I have not got withdrawal bleeding yet, which should be within five to seven days of taking the pill.
Is it necessary to have withdrawal bleeding after taking I-pill on the third day of the period?
What are the chances of pregnancy?
Why I am not getting withdrawal bleeding?
Does I-pill work in periods and how it is working in periods?
I read your query and can understand your concern.
Have you taken an advised dose of I-pill (Levonorgestrel)?
If the pill is not taken at the proper dose, it might not work as expected. You have taken it in the middle of menstrual bleeding and therefore you might get prolonged bleeding afterward.
Also, in the case of hormonal imbalance, some extra effects could be seen. But sex during menstruation is least likely to cause conception as it is not a fertile period. As I told you might get prolonged menstrual bleeding or brownish-reddish vaginal discharge. Wait for the next period. I hope things would be better. If you are too anxious, for your satisfaction do serum beta hCG (blood pregnancy test). It will more likely be negative.
Hope this helps.
