Took I-Pill 3 Hours after Having Sex, Then Bleeding

I had sex with my girlfriend who is 17 yrs old on 21st sept. The condom tore during the intercourse and she took a emergency contraceptive pill after 3 hours (I-Pill). There was little bleeding for couple of days along with pain and then it was fine. This was her first intercourse. But on 27th Sept., she started bleeding again. What does it mean? Are there chances of pregnancy?

Dear Suvid,

Do you know when her last period began and ended? The initial bleeding and later bleeding is most likely (97%) caused by a combination of this being her first time having sex and her having taken the I-Pill. I wouldn’t be too concerned at all. If her next expected period doesn’t come, I would recommend taking a home pregnancy test. She should take it first thing in the morning of the day when her next period should have ended for best results. The HPT should be negative, but this will give you confirmation. The odds are extremely in your favor, so I wouldn’t be too worried.

Best luck,


  1. Her Last period was on 13th September . Thanks a lot for your quick reply.

    • She very well may have been fertile when you had sex; however, since you did the I-Pill so quickly, you should still be good to go. I would still be sure to follow up later on with a home pregnancy test – just to be safe.
