Patient Question

Hello Doctor,


Is bleeding normal after taking Postinor 2, accompanied by mild abdominal pain and cramps, after a week?



Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.


To determine the cause of the bleeding, it is important to consider whether you might be pregnant or not. I would recommend conducting a pregnancy test and seeking an abdominopelvic ultrasound scan to confirm the reason behind the bleeding. Consulting with a healthcare professional is advised for accurate assessment and guidance in this situation.
