Brief Answer:
Likely to be withdrawal bleeding due to the emergency contraceptive pill.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Though you had the unprotected intercourse during the fertile period of your cycle presuming you have a monthly period, you are amply protected as you consumed the emergency contraceptive pill within the stipulated time interval.

The spotting you are experiencing is likely to be due to the withdrawal effect observed after using emergency contraception.

Your next natural period is likely to be delayed by a week or two due to hormone disturbance created by the pill.

Please visit a specialist for further evaluation if you become overdue by ten days for your next natural period.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Brief Answer:
Next natural period should fall on the 11th of February.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Here are your answers:
1. This spotting is unlikely to be your natural period. It is more likely to be the withdrawal bleeding.

2. Your next natural period should fall on the 11th of February. This may get delayed due to the pill effect.

3. You have to see a doctor if you become overdue by ten days. There is no need now unless otherwise.


Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
