Hello XXXXXXX
This is the effect of the ipill. Thats withdrawal bleeding from the ipill which occurs within a few days of the intake. She will have irregular periods in the next month or so. Thats a side effect of the pill. But you should know that frequent intake of the pill will cause menstrual problems. You should also know that you are not protected for future pregnancies. Use a condom if you're not using regular oc pills.

This withdrawal bleed means that she isnt pregnant. Its accurate 95%of the time.
As i have mentioned, her periods may be irregular for a month or so due to hormonal imbalance.

Ideally it should have been like a period. But at least 2days of bleeding is normal. Watch for the next period and it may be heavy and irregular. If you dont bleed within 6wks take a pregnancy test. Till then wait and watch. Its unlikely that you are pregnant as there was some good amt bleeding.
