Thanks for the query to ATD for an opinion,
The fact that your withdrawal bleeding haas started since last two days which is as expected between 5-7 days post ipill intake , indicates that endometrium is being shed and there was no implantation at all. This withdrawal bleed indirectly indicates that you are pregnancy safe. However, urine pregnancy test shall not be conclusive until 8 days post missed periods, so if you wish to be conclusive over chances of pregnancy then get a serum beta hcg test done where if the hcg levels re less than 3mIU then you are surely not pregnant.
The nausea, vomiting and stomach bloating is due to the progesterone side effect owing to the withdrawal effect and can be controlled with an antiemetic ( perinorm 10mg) and a PPI ( pantoprazole 40 mg) which is available as an OTC in most countries. This would help.
I hope i have answered your query in detail,
Wishing you safe sexual practices,
