Hi doctor,

I had unprotected withdrawal method sex two days before ovulation and had one I-pill within 30 hours. Today, I am experiencing period like cramps from morning. I just saw some spotting which may or may not be my early period. I am regular in my periods. My last period was on 12th of last month and it lasted for five days. Now, is this an early period or implantation bleeding for pregnancy? When should I do urine pregnancy test?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • This is not an implantation bleed or spotting at all, instead it is the initiation of a withdrawal bleed which is natural to occur after taking an emergency contraceptive pill like I-pill.
  • The withdrawal bleeding is initiated within next 7-10 days after the pill and this is what is occurring.
  • Your blood flow shall increase and you shall have your menses now for next few days.
  • However, if you want to rule out pregnancy confirmatively, then you should get a serum beta hCG test (human chorionic gonadotropin) as of now, which can be done earliest at seven days post last intercourse.
  • If the hCG levels are less than 5 ng/dL, then you are not pregnant and this spotting is indicative of initiation of your withdrawal bleed.
