hello XXXXXX
Thanks for your query.
The I pill is an emergency contraceptive pill.
It is known to alter your normal menstrual period.
It can delay your periods by a week or ten days, or prepone them by the same .
Hence, after I pill it is normal to have an early period.
however a heavy bleeding is not normal.
You might have a slight chance of being pregnant and having an abortion.
Please consult a gynecologist to confirm the diagnosis.
Take care, and feel free to discuss further.
Be well.

The solution is to consult a Gynecologist at the earliest to confirm that this is not a pregnancy related complication.

I already told you that the problem you are experiencing is most probably a side effect of the I pill.
However, there is a very remote chance that you might be pregnant, and experiencing heavy bleeding due to an abortion.
A gynecologist would rule out that possibility.
Thats all.
I cannot tell you here online if you are or will become pregnant.
