Question: I am on Sprintec 28. I missed a pill this week and I took two together today, I'm at the beginning of week three of my pill pack. I have some light breakthrough bleeding but this happens nearly every month even if i don't miss any pills. Last night I had sex without a condom but he pulled out. I'm very worried. Should I take emergency contraception?

Hi,
Thanks for posting your query.
If you have taken your missed pill within 24 hrs & there was no ejaculation inside vagina then there is no need of taking emergency contraceptive pill.
However you would have to take precaution till one week of missed pill period.
I hope your query has been answered.
I will be available for your your further queries.
Regards,

Good day, Doctor! My girlfriend and I had unprotected sex on the 6th day of her menstrual cycle. Due to anxiety and just to make sure, I made her take 4 pills of Nordette 54 hours after the encounter and another four pills 12 hours after the first dose. It has already been 10 days since she took the ECP and she bled for 1 and a half days. I am wondering if this was withdrawal bleeding, a side effect of the drug she took, or implantation bleeding. The blood discharge was bright red according to her and she has not felt any cramping sensation. What are the chances that she's pregnant? Are we in the clear?
