Pink Spots Appear After Taking Emergency Contraception?
I want to ask, a week ago I took a postinor for emergency contraception as recommended. Then this morning the pink spots appeared, and now it becomes a lot like menstruation. Is this normal?

Thank you for using the HealthReplies.com consulting service
Postinor is a type of emergency contraception used to prevent pregnancy when intercourse does not interfere with safety. Postinor contains the hormone levonorgestrel, a progestin hormone, a progesterone derivative that works by preventing ovulation and thickening cervical mucus so that sperm do not easily fertilize eggs that have been released from the ovaries. This type of contraception is effectively used within 72 hours after intercourse. This drug is also not recommended for long-term consumption.
This drug can cause side effects such as more menstrual bleeding, abdominal pain / cramps, headaches, nausea, vomiting, breast tend to be more sensitive.
So you do not need to worry if after taking the drug appear spots accompanied by bleeding such as menstruation. This can occur due to postinor effects that you consume. The next menstrual cycle may not be smooth, but you do not need to worry because the condition only occurs for a while.
If necessary, you can do a consultation and examination directly to the nearest doctor or obstetrician to get further information and evaluation.
Thus the information we can convey, hopefully helps
