It is natural to have bleeding after taking an emergency contraceptive and there is little need for concern. What your girl friend is experiencing may be due to withdrawal bleed. A common side effect of the pill is that it causes spotting at irregular intervals, which should go away by itself after the next period. If your girlfriend experiences bleeding that is getting worse or is having abdominal pain, fever or dizziness, I would suggest that she see her doctor immediately.
