Use Plan B: Emergency contraception is a high dose of birth control to disrupt the hormonal patterns to delay or prevent ovulation. Abnormal bleeding after is common but does not happen in most people. Check preg test in 10 days to confirm it worked and see a doctor to start more reliable contraception.

If I got withdrawal bleeding 10 days after ecp. Does it mean it worked. Pls...help?

Agree with Dr Cress: Potential side effects w emergency contraception include menstrual flow changes (spotting, bleeding, early or late period). So it depends on if the bleeding was a period or not. A home pregnancy test can help to differentiate.

The use of an: Emergency contraceptive pill will not impact effectiveness of Depo Provera. However, I am not sure that I exactly understand what you are asking.

If I have withdrawal bleeding after taking Nordette (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) ECP does it mean I am not pregnant? How likely would it be that I am not pregnant?

If I have withdrawal bleeding after taking Nordette (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) ECP does it mean I am not pregnant? How likely would it be that I am not pregnant?

Likely not preg: If you completed entire course of med and are having period (bleeding) when you should, unlikely you are pregnant. If concerned do home preg test on first morning urine. If neg, repeat in 7-10 days. If both neg very unlikely you are preg. Hope this helps. Best of luck. Dr. R

Will withdrawal bleeding (very light brownish discharge) 6 days after taking ECP (Nordette) assures me that I'm not pregnant?

No: So do a pregnancy test 7 days after the episode, and repeat in another 7 days if negative. Use consistent contraception thereafter if pregnancy is not desired

I had sex on day 4 of period (Oct 19). Took nordette (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) as ecp (Oct 20). Period ended Oct 22. Experiencing period-like bleeding Oct 25. Am I pregnany?

Probably not: Because of the timing and use of ECP, you are not likely pregnant. You can check a test if you are wirried. The abnormal bleeding is due to the ECP, and should correct itself. Do you need to be thinking about a better form of birth control?

Unlikely, but...: Emergency contraception pills can alter the menstrual for the cycle in which they were taken, and sometimes the next cycle too. One should be sure to check a home pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex, because emergency contraception pills work most of the time, but not all the time. Also, be sure to start using a reliable form of birth control, so that one will NOT need emergency pills again.

Not necessarily: Withdrawal bleeding or early pregnancy bleeding can be brown or red in color. If it has been 3 weeks since you took the ECP, then please do a pregnancy test if you have not gotten a normal period.

I am taking birth control continuously. I accidentally took a few inactive pills and now I am having withdrawal bleeding. Can I stop it?

I am taking birth control continuously. I accidentally took a few inactive pills and now I am having withdrawal bleeding. Can I stop it?

Start a new pack: If you are taking oral contraceptive pills continuously and then take inactive pills, you are correct, you will get withdrawal bleeding. You did not mention how many days of inactive pills you have taken. There are 7 days of inactive pills in a 1-month pill pack. The withdrawal bleed usually starts (and ends) during the 7 days of inactive pills. Starting a new pack will stop withdrawal bleed.

Withdrawal Bleeding: Wow. Please define what you mean by 'withdrawal bleeding'. Are you thinking of taking Plan B while you are on birth control? Really?

Doctors do not guess: I doubt you are pregnant since there was no sperm deep inside of the vagina. But, if your next period does not start then it will be time for a pregnancy test. No doctor ever 'guesses' when it comes to diagnosing pregnancy.

Is Plan B withdrawal bleeding good?

Is Plan B withdrawal bleeding good?

Not exactly sure: What you mean. However, bleeding after taking Plan B is neither good nor bad. It is a possible side effect of plan b. The way you know that it has worked is when you get your actual period.

Is it possible for me to ovulate during withdrawal bleeding?

Is it possible for me to ovulate during withdrawal bleeding?

Basically "no": I don't know what you mean when you say withdrawal bleeding. Can you ask this question again in your own words (not jargon?) this term has a specific medical meaning, but I sees it misused on the internet all the time. Withdrawal bleeding, implantation bleeding, and decimal bleeding are terms that are used online in non-medical groups - and 99% of the time incorrectly.

Difference between implantation bleeding and withdrawal bleeding.

Pregnancy: Implantation bleeding exclusively occurs if you are pregnant. If you think you might be pregnant check then check a home pregnancy test. They are cheap, reliable and available at any pharmacy. This is how you tell the difference.

How to differentiate withdrawal bleeding and implantation bleeding?

How to differentiate withdrawal bleeding and implantation bleeding?

Very different.: Withdrawal bleeding refers to bleeding after withdrawal of hormones, like the end of a oral contraceptive cycle. Implantation bleeding refers to the early invasion of the uterine lining by an early pregnancy.
