Heavy periods: I personally have not heard an affiliation with iron tablets causing increased bleeding, I think this is just coincidence.

Light periods 5 days after taking ECP. Does this mean I am not pregnent? My normal period date is not around this time of the month.
Periods/Plan B: Taking emergency contraception is quite likely to throw your periods off for a month - that's exactly how they work. If you had 5 days of bleeding shortly after the pill use, this sounds very normal and means you should not be or become pregnant. GIve it a couple of more weeks until your normal period would have been due and then if you have concern yet, take a home pregnancy test - but unlikely. ...Read more

Light period: Would check urine, blood HCG. Though unlikely, there still is a minuscule possibility of pregnancy, if not on consistent BC.

There are many causes of these symptoms. One is pregnancy. That is easy to test for- could it be the cause? There could be changes with your hormones for other reasons. Either it could be from the ovaries or some other location.
If your home pregnancy test is negative, could be time to see the family doctor, or OB/GYN, or endocrinologist, probably in that order. ...Read more
