I took an emergency contraceptive pill and then 7 days after I had the withdrawal bleeding a week and a half earlier than my menstruation due.. will I get my period on my due or will it be affected by the intake of the pills?
No one can ever predict either a) if a woman will have vaginal bleeding after EC and if so, when or b) how EC will impact her menstrual cycle.
It just varies much too much, but we'd generally say to figure you might have the kind of bleeding you did, and your menstrual cycle may be off for a cycle or two.
