HI, i am seventeen years old. i had period two weeks ago but now i am bleeding again from yesterday morning . i had PROTECTED sex after two days my period had stopped . he used a condom, it did not break but for safety i took an emergency contraceptive (progesterone only) pill after 6-7 hours in full stomach ( i went to sleep and ate when i woke up and then took the pill ) . now i am bleeding as it is regular period . could it be the pill?? but i have been taking it for past 6 months and i never had this kind of bleeding between period. i dont use any regular contraceptive as i only have sex once in a month and i take the ECP every time . i dont think its STD/STI as we both are each others first and he is very loyal . is there any possibility that i hurt myself somehow during masturbation? i masturbated before the day i started having this bleeding and i had a cut in my finger which was dried and blood was not oozing . what should i do?? i can not tell my parents and i am from Bangladesh so going to a doctor is the last thing on the list. is there any medicine i can take?
Emergency contraceptives were not meant as planned birth control. Its for emergencies. It will mess up your cycle if you take it so frequently. All you can do is just wait it out. It will get straight again. I'd think about the regular birth control pill if I were you. The ecps are only about 80% effective and the regular birth control pill when taken correctly is 99% effective.
