Ipill is an emergency contraceptive pill which is a high dose hormones 50times more potent than normal pill. It can alter your periods and cause bleeding too. Get a direct check-up.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Hi, My girlfriend recently had her period and started her new birth control pack. She took the first two pills and then missed day 3 and 4. On the 5th day (today) she took pills 4 and 5. But ultimately skipped pill 3 due to the fact the packaging said not to take 3. As of today she started bleeding again (bleeding about the same consist flow of her normal period); We had intercourse twice in the time of 5 days after her initial cycle. I m wondering what the cause of the second bleeding could be?

Hi. I am 24 years old. I m not into regular sex but I had unprotected intercourse with my fiancé on the 7th day from when my periods started. I bled as much as a spot that day. I took an ipill approximately 52 hours later. I have a healthy menstrual cycle of 28-30 days on an average. But I witnessed blood flow on the 9th day from when I had sex. I need to know if it can be due to implantation (as I read through few websites) or it is a side effect of the i pill ? I had taken i pill twice before but that was more than a year ago and I did not witness any bleeding. This is the first time I had unprotected sex.

Hi, My partner and i had safe sex on the 11th of July (7 days after her period). However after I ejacuated into the condom there was some leakage, out of fear my partner had an I pill just to be safe. She started bleeding after a week (18th July) and the bleeding stopped on 25th of July. But bleeding started again on 28th on July. She was suppose to get her periods on 29th July. she is 22. Please help us understand why this is happening. Is she pregnant or just the side affect of the pill?
