i had unprotected sex with my gf on 8th july (she was ovulating according to her),i used the withdrawal method,but to be sure i gave her i pill ( ecp by cipla) within 6hrs on the same day...on the 20th july she had vaginal bleeding which was light and lasted for 2 to 3 days.. there was no spotting and was red in colour..according to her she gets her period between 26th to 28th july. after the bleeding on the 20th july(which lasted for 2 to 3 days) till now that is 16th august she had no bleeding...My query is the bleeding she had was it a early period or withdrawal bleeding ? and could she be pregnant? and will the next period come in the month of august or was it missed?

Thanks for writing to us.
The bleeding she had on 20th july is likely to be a withdrawal bleeding. The delay in the periods now is commonly seen after taking an emergency contraceptive. She needs to check her urine to rule out pregnancy and wait for her periods.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
