Hi! Me and my Husband had unprotected intercourse but he did not discharge inside and used the withdrawal technique. for precaution I took an Ipill immediately on 16th Feb. i have started seeing blood spotting since 24th Feb...but on 26th I had bleeding as I bleed on 1st day of your period with stomach cramps. My last period was on 7th Feb which lasted for 6 days. i m unable to understand whether the bleeding i m facing now is my regular periods or long the effect of Ipill will be there and will it affect my period cycle in the next few months??? My age is 25yrs and weight will be 53kg.

Brief Answer: it is due to Ipill Detailed Answer: Hello XXXXXXX I have read your query. The bleeding that you had on 26th February is your regular period. It was brought to an early date by the Ipill that you took on 16th February. Pre-ponement of menstrual cycles is one of the common side effects of Ipill. The effect of Ipill will not be there once you get your periods. Yes, your period cycle will change to the new dates, approximately 26 to 28 of every month. Hope this helps you. Let me know if you need clarifications. Regards,

Brief Answer: take it as regular period Detailed Answer: Hello XXXXXXX I understand your concerns. Many women taking Ipill face this problem. And yes, the bleeding after taking Ipill is not the same as regular period. In fact, your period would stop sooner too. Whatever be it, you can consider this as your regular period, and wait for your next period accordingly. Try not to use another pill before you get your next period. Hope this clarifies.
