I have been sexually active for a month now and I have been taking the emergency pills for a while, but then after a week I started bleeding at first I thought it was a spot but it's now a week I don't know, is it serious
Hi! If you were my patient, I would advise you that irregular bleeding after the morning after pill is common. I always check a pregnancy test first. If that is negative and the bleeding is not excessive, I tend to take a "wait and watch" approach to the bleeding. I would also encourage you to consider a more effective form of contraception if you are going to be in a long term relationship, Good luck! Dr B
