I had unprotected sex with my BF on 3rd day of my period though he did not ejaculate in me.that was on April15th and then again had unprotected sex again on May 6th.Though i took an I-Pill within an Hour.Now since 13th may i have been bleeding i am not sure if its my periods because my period was also due nearby,also the bleeding is not like my usual period one,its just pure red blood coming out.So Could it be spotting because of the Pill?Or Could it be pregnancy ?i have not take the Pregnancy test.Please Advice.

Thanks for writing to us.

The chances of pregnancy are very less as you had emergency pills within 1hr after unprotected sex and he is not ejaculated inside.

The bleeding is because of your periods (changes in blood flow may be because of pills).

There is no need to do a pregnancy test.

Hope I have answered your query, if you have any further questions I will be happy to help.

But as far as i know the pill does not work if one is already pregnant right ? we even had unprotected sex during my 3rd day of period last month,and usually my periods do not last more than 4 days,within 1 cycle we had unprotected sex 2 times and i was just waiting for this month's periods to make sure i am not pregnant or something.and this time the flow is a bit different,so i am confused.So are you sure there is no need for me to take a test ?
and yes i did not take any Ipill the 1st time we had unprotected sex on my 3rd day of period.i took it this time this month.

Yes, you are right I-pills are not effective in pregnant patient because it is only a type of emergency contraception.

There is no need for you to take the pregnancy test now.
