Question: Hi, During intercourse with my partner, the precaution failed and the ejaculation happened inside. She took i pill within 3 hours. She is having little bleeding after 5 days now. How long this bleeding will happen? Is there any chances of pregnancy? Her last periods came on 11th Dec and we had love on 23rd Dec.

Hello,
The ipill will cause bleeding after a few days.That normal.So if she is having bleeding now,its the withdrawal bleeding after taking the ipill.It will last a few days like a period.After that you cycles may be slightly irregular for a 1-2 months,but regularise after that.Provided she doesnt take ipill on a regular basis.If she has history of irregular periods,then she should start having oral pills daily which will provide contraception and regularize her cycles both at the same time.

Since she has bleeding, so is there any risk or probability of pregnancy now?
Will it have any after effects later on ( few years/months down the line)?
How many days this bleeding remains
doctor
Answered by Dr. Rhea Chanda 3 hours later
During the bleeding,there is no possibility of pregnancy. There should be no long term effects.But using ipill frequently,is not recommended.The bleeding should remain like a normal period 5-7 days.

I was given a 1 mg Estergen pill for hot flashes to take after bladder surgery to correct my prolapsed bladder but the doctor s assistant did not give me the Progesterone with it. I do still have my ovaries and uterius. after taking the Esterdoil for 9 months without Progesterone, I have started bleeding. I went in to see the doctor last week and he told me I should have been taking Progesterone also. So he took me off of the Estregen and gave me a Progesterone pill to take for 10 days. If I should stop bleeding on my on before I start taking the Progesterone, is it necessary to still take the Progesterone? I am dreading taking the harmone to make me have a heavy period?

My daughter had an abortion seven weeks ago and is still bleeding and clotting. She has been to her gynocologist with these issues but still is having the problem. She had an ultrasound and blood work done to see if she was still pregnant or had pregnancy tissue left in her uterus. The doctornsaid she is fine and the bleeding will stop. Some times it stops but when least expected she will bleeds through her clothes profusely. Her tampon comes out and so does large clots with bright red blood. It is not her period! She is seeing her doctor tomorrow for more answers to this issue. Could there have been damage to her uterus during the abortion? I think her doctor wants to do an abalation? /D&C? Do you think this is the answer or do you have any other recommendations. She can t live a normal life at the moment because of this excessive and unpredictable bleeding. Thank you for your help.
