Brief Answer:
NORMAL SIDE EFFECT OF I PILL, DONT WORRY

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for writing to us wit your health concern.
Mild pain and cramps are to be expected after taking the I pill.
Bleeding is not always necessary, only some women bleed in response to hormone withdrawal after taking the I pill.
When was her last menstrual period.
If she had not ovulated already, and if the pill was taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex, it will work in more than 80 % of cases.
She might experience some bleeding in a few days.
Her next period might be preponed or postponed too by a few days.
All said and done, just take a pregnancy test 3 weeks after unprotected sex.
All the best
Please feel free to discuss further.
