Not likely: I am not a Obstetrician / Gynecologist, so first you should go to whoever prescribed the levonorgestrel & ask this question in person. From your description, I think the bleeding is from withdrawal of levonorgestrel with a contribution from your usual menstrual cycle. Generally, with such bleeding, pregnancy is unlikely. You could check a home pregnancy test just to be sure. ...Read more

No, unlikely.: No, a woman is not likely to be pregnant if a heavy period comes at the time she expects her period. If she is very worried about pregnancy, she can do a urine pregnancy test (results are accurate if at least 2-3 weeks after sex... meaning 2-3 weeks after when conception might have occurred). ...Read more

What is the chance of still bein pregnant if u got a heavy period on placebo pills, took 2 pregnant  tests 4 weeks after encounter and both came out negative?

Not pregnant: If no sexual contact in the last 4 weeks, negative urine or blood pregnancy tests mean not pregnant. It only takes 2 weeks for a pregnancy to show up as positive on a urine pregnancy test. Testing at 3 weeks out, or later, will continue to give a reliable result... So a negative means no. ...Read more

How to Get Pregnant: I know of no mother or school teacher or other person teaching you about the birds and the bees that would tell you it is possible to get pregnant by simply being touched. Pregnancy occurs when one is ovulating and exposed to semen inside of the vagina. Without sperm it is impossible to make a baby. Also bleeding or having a period means one is not pregnant. You are not pregnant. ...Read more
