Symptoms:  Vaginal bleeding
Doctor

A:   Any contact of sperm/semen with the woman's vagina can get her pregnant. It was wise of you to take an emergency pill for protection against unwanted births.The chances of failure of an emergency or morning after pill is less than 2 in 100.
The common side effects of a morning-after pill are abdominal (tummy) pain, headache, irregular menstrual bleeding (spotting or heavy bleeding) before your next period is due, nausea (feeling sick) and tiredness. Altered colour discharge or spotting before the period is also a side effect of the emergency pill and is not suggestive of a pregnancy.
However, if you still feel stressed out about this, the best option is to do a home pregnancy test on the day of the expected period.Your girl friend can follow the instructions on the pack and get tested herself without any hassles.
