Brief Answer: WITHDRAWAL BLEEDING. RARE CHANCE OF PREGNANCY. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for writing to us. According to your last period date, you did sex on SAFE period and took I-Pill within 12 hrs of unprotected sex which gives more than 95% protection against unwanted pregnancy. Here, chance of pregnancy is quite RARE or NEGLIGIBLE. You got WITHDRAWAL bleeding 12 days after taking I-Pill. It is quite common and normal feature. Most women get this type of bleeding. However, it stops automatically within 3 to 5 days in most cases. Lastly, your next period may be delayed 1 to 2 weeks or more due to hormonal imbalance and mental stress. If your period is delayed more than 1 week, you must undergo one home pregnancy test to exclude RARE possibility. Hope, it helps for your information. Kindly, close the discussion if you don't have any other query. Wish your good health and practice safe sex in future.
