No.: Vaginal bleeding cannot cause enough force to disrupt an intact hymen. Vaginal intercourse, on the other hand, will. Why are you taking i pill? The i pill is an emergency contraceptive for unprotected sex. If you desire a pill to regulate your periods and offer birth control, speak with your doctor about other pills available.

NO: A girl is able to bleed from her vagina because even if she is a virgin the hymen is usually not completely intact. Using an emergency contraceptive like i pill will not have any effect on her hymen.

Depends on pill: Each pill has different side effects. However most of them will help to make periods more regular. Need to talk with a gynecologist.
