    Good morning ma'am The bleeding is very likely a side effect of the post pill and it's very unlikely you'd be pregnant if you had sex just after you menstruate —if you have regular cycles— as you'd be "safe" at the time Do have a nice day

    so you are sure am OK and am not pregnant.. or should I still do a pregnancy test
    Dr. Tunde A answered:

    good afternoon post pills contain Progestins — Levonorgestrel for instance— and spotting/bleeding is a common side effect (other common side effects are headache, nausea, and menstrual irregularities) and that appears to be the case here. Secondly, with regular menstrual periods and cycle lengths of 26—32 days,ovulation would fall between day 12— 16 (starting from the first day of menstruation) so, the first few days after your menstrsuation ends would fall in a "safe" period(so you're unlikely to get pregnant then) You can still do a pregnancy test but that would be useful if done around your next expected menstruation. Lastly, I'd urge you to embrace condom use. You don't have to worry about baby bumps and there's the added benefit of prevention of STDs. Do have a nice day. (apologies for the delay in response. feel free to ask for more clarification if needed)
