Brief Answer: DETAILS ARE GIVEN BELOW. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for writing to us. Followings are my comments: 1) You got withdrawal bleeding on 6th Dec due to effect of the emergency pill. It is quite common and natural phenomena. Most women get this type of bleeding for 3 to 5 days. 2) You had taken 2nd time pill on Dec 26 and this time late period may be due to hormonal imbalance and mental stress. However, you need to rule out pregnancy through one home pregnancy test to clear doubts. 3) In case of negative test result, you can wait another one week to get your withdrawal bleeding (same to period). Otherwise, you have to consult with your GYNECOLOGIST for relevant investigations and management. 4) Next time, you must use regular contraceptive pill instead of emergency pill. It will give regular monthly period & more than 99.9% protection against unwanted pregnancy after 1-month use. Hope, it helps for your information. Kindly, close the discussion if you don't have any other query. Wish your good health and practice safe sex always. Regards, Dr Soumen For future query, you can directly approach me through WWW.WWWW.WW
