Why is discharge and bleeding after taking an I pill ?

I had an i pill on 8th april and then brownish discharge started on 22nd April and in few hours it turned into full red bleeding and a heavy flow on 23rd and lighter flow on 24th and by the end of 24th night, it was again brown discharge that too very very less. Is it because of the pill or could it be the sign of pregnancy? Normally, my periods last for 5 days. I am really scared. I have no tenderness in my breast but i do feel pukish at times but maybe its because my mind is all worried about being pregnant . Please help

Hi,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum. It is common to have irregular periods after taking emergency contraception. I hope you have taken the pill within 72 hours after the unprotected intercourse. If you are worried please go ahead and do a pregnancy test. You can get a pregnancy kit and do the test at home.If you are not pregnant, please do check if the same irregularity continue in your next cycles as well. If it does, please seek care from a gynecologist. Take care.

I am 19 years + and my girl friend is also 19+. We had sex on 15th of March 2011. She had her normal periods on 5th of March. I inserted for about only 10 seconds. and nothing came off it (if it had I would have known). She took an ipill on 16th of March. Now from past tuesday i.e. 29th March, she started to bleed. She is also having abdominal pain . I took her to a gynaec. She told that it might be due to ipill. It will be ok once her periods come and once everything thats inside comes out. I am very tensed. I don t have much people around me. She too is very tensed. What should we do????.....Please doctor please answer!!!...Please help......

I'm definitely not sexually active, but yesterday I found this purplish brownish discharge in my underwear. I'm supposed to start my period in about a week and am on birth control for my migraines. I put a tampon in and took it out later to see if I could figure out if it was blood or whatever it was. But it didn't smell right or look right. When I put it in the toilet it filled up with water and definitely showed that it was, in fact, a purple. Could you tell me what it possibly is? Maybe a side effect of the sronyx(the birth control I'm using)? I'm going off of that soon because of other side effects, so is that a possibility?

I've been having dark brown discharge about a week before my period. I am on birth control, I take the pills. Sometimes I take it a couple hours later than I should and I sex with my boyfriend. I had sex with my boyfriend when I was supposed to start my period in May but it never came because I spotted in the middle and had switched birth controls. I then had sex with him again but when I was on the pill on the 15th and he did NOT cum inside of me. Could I be pregnant?
