Hello,

If pregnancy has been excluded by your health care provider before prescribing the pill, you can go ahead with the prescription and inform your doctor if you notice any prolonged bleeding/spotting, intermittent bleeding/spotting, abnormal bruising, excessive breast tenderness etc. There can be some hormonal disruption during the first couple of cycles, more so because you took the high progesterone containing emergency contraceptive pill prior to this prescription.

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

Regards,
Dr. Shanti Vennam, OBGYN
