Brief Answer: CHANCE OF PREGNANCY <1%. Detailed Answer: Hello XXXXXXX Thanks for writing to us. Followings are my comments: 1) Yes, withdrawal bleeding after taking I-pill is normal thing. You don't need to be worried about this. 2) I-pill gives more than 95% protection against unwanted pregnancy if it is taken within first 24 hrs. In your case, chance of pregnancy is quite low (less than 1%). 3) Your next cycle will be delayed for 1 to 2 weeks from period due date due to hormonal imbalance and mental stress. Most women get late period after intake of I-pill. However, I suggest to undergo one home pregnancy test if your period is delayed more than 1 week. Hope, I have answered your query. Let me know, if you need further clarification. Wish your good health and practice safe sex in future. Regards, Dr Soumen For future query, you can directly approach me through WWW.WWWW.WW

Brief Answer: DETAILS ARE GIVEN BELOW. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for follow up query. 1) Withdrawal bleeding after taking I-pill usually lasts for 3 to 5 days XXXXXXX In most cases, no treatment is required. 2) YES, heavy flow can occur in withdrawal bleeding. If the bleeding is quite heavy continuously, then you can take TRANEXAMIC ACID group of medicine to arrest or control that for temporary purpose. You would maintain genital hygiene properly.
