Hi, I just finished...

Hi, I just finished my periods about 5 days ago. However two days before the end of my period I had sex and took the morning after pill about 3 days later. Yesterday night I noticed I was bleeding from my vagina and this morning it's more heavy and brownish. What could be the problem?

Doctor's Assistant: Are you in any pain? How regular are your periods?

I'm not in any pain

Hi, I'm Shannice.

The morning after pill causes changes in your normal hormonal balance and can often cause weird bleeding episodes. Many women will report unusual spotting. Some women also find that the hormones in the pills can cause unexpected bleeding, but this is not a common or serious side effect. I think what you are experiencing is not unusual. Hope that helps.

Ask Your Own Medical Question

If the bleeding becomes very heavy over the next couple of days it would probably be worthwhile to have a doctor examine you.

Please let me know if you have any other questions. I would greatly appreciate it if you could give me a 5-star rating. We can continue to speak even after you rate if you would like. Thanks!

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
