Brief Answer:
Irregular bleeding

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear, I have gone through your question and understand your concerns. Unwanted 72 is the emergency contraceptive pill, and it causes withdrawal bleeding within 5-10 days of its intake.
It also has the side effect of delaying the next expected period by 2-3 weeks .
It has no more dangerous adverse effects in a virgin girl.
Hope you found the answer helpful. Please do get back for further queries.
Wishing you good health.
