After taking unwanted 72,withdrawl bleeding is apt to occur.
This withdrawl bleeding should be conted as periods and the next periods shoukd be expected after one month from this.
However there may be cases where periods occur early or get delayed ( not more than 5 days).
Important-emergency contraceptive pills like unwanted 72 are for emergency use only.these pills were made for rape cases but due to easy availability in the market,they are being misused.repeated use of such pills can result in irregular cycles and can even have so much so of an adverse effect that menses cease to come.
