Brief Answer:
Due to side effect of i-pill.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
Since you took I-pill on 13th, now the irregular light bleeding that you are having is the withdrawal bleeding which happens due to the high dose of hormones in the emergency contraceptive pill.
This is a common side effect of such pills. Your routine period can also be delayed by a few days. Do not worry. This is not indicative of pregnancy.
But I would advise you to use a surer way contraception like oral pills as I-pill if taken repeatedly can cause you menstrual irregularities.

Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.

Brief Answer:
Take 2-3 days.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
It will take 2-3 days for the side effects of the i-pill to be over. Do wait and do a hot fomentation of the lower abdomen. You can also take an over the counter anti spasmodic for relief.
