Doctor insights on:
Took escapelle on dec26, next period was 2 days earlier (jan 4)& next feb 9. Cycle lenght used to be 31 days. Is it possiblevlenght to be longer now?
Typical: Emergency contraception is used after unprotected intercourse to decrease the risk of pregnancy by about 70%. It is a high dose of birth control to disrupt the hormonal patterns to delay or prevent ovulation. Abnormal bleeding or an abnormal cycle after use is common. Check preg test in 10 days. ...Read more
Irregular bleeding: Can be normal with OCP, keep track and let your doctor know if this keeps occuring. ...Read more
Normal experience: When you took this emergency contraception, it is a large dose of progesterone. It is common for women to experience a withdrawal bleed related to the medication that I believe you have mistaken for your period. Then it has the effect of delaying the onset of the next cycle. This is a common experience. Take a pregnancy test, use condoms and wait. If you do not get a period, talk to your doc! ...Read more
Took escapelle in dec. Period length's 4 days. Today's the 4th day & bleeding's a bit heavier than usual on that day. Will length be longer henceforth
Not necessarily: Any effect from the escapelle on your period should be only that cycle. Later periods should be back to normal, but sometimes after a "reset" your cycles can change a little. ...Read more
I've taken escapelle e. C on 5/5/2013 and today (20/5/2013) im exactly 2 days late. I took 2 hpt and both showed neg. Had deep red spotting on 12-14/5?
Not if negative : Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. After this much time clearly you are not pregnant. See your doctor for irregular periods. ...Read more
Period was from 6th to11th November. Sex on 18th, however he did not come inside me. Took Escapelle within 15 hours. White discharge 5 days later.preg?
Too soon to know:
Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about 2-3 weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex.

Maybe : Escapelle is an emergency hormonal contraception and can effect your period. However, it isn't as effective as regular birth control pills or other methods of contraception. If your period is 5 days late or more, you need to check a pregnancy test and see your doctor. Now is also the time to consider starting a more reliable method of contraception to prevent this worry in the future. Best wishes. ...Read more

Plan B: Anyone having intercourse without birth control or condoms may get pregnant. If intercourse was within 72 hours you consider taking plan b. Ella (ulipristal acetate) is another brand that can be used up to 5 days after unprotected intercourse. Plan b is a high dose of birth control to disrupt the hormonal patterns to delay or prevent ovulation. Abnormal bleeding after is common. Check preg test in 10 days. ...Read more

Is there any chance to be pregnant if the condom slipped off when I was in my 10th day after ovulation? I took Escapelle after 12h. Expct my period in2d
Pregnancy is possible from sex on any and all days of the cycle. The pill should provide you better than 90% protection from pregnancy. If you miss your period by 4-5 days, do a home pregnancy test. If the result is negative repeat the test 4-5 days later unless you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex if you have sex.

Hi Doc. I had unsafe sex Dec 2015, got my period Jan. & I had sex again that month, but I took escapelle(PTest -ve)& its 2days to end Feb & no period.
Tests can be wrong!: Repeat the test if you're worried. I don't know if you've heard the phrase "false positive" or "false negative" before. It is an important concept. Realize that test results are not perfect and they can mislead you if you overly rely upon them. In the words of the "Great Communicator" : "Trust; but verify", the only good thing that came out of his mouth in 8 years in office! ...Read more
Period was 17-23 May, had sex on 26 and taken escapelle on that day. 5days later, I had bleeding for 5 days and my period is late now. Am i pregnant?
No: You had your bleeding for 5 days. That was your "period". The cycle is going to be off because of the use of the escapelle. It may take a cycle or two to get back on track. ...Read more
Had anal sex (got paranoid it leaked out), took escapelle next day. Now period is late for 10 days, PMS symp, neg test results how long can it delay?
A while: When you take a morning after pill, it can alter the subsequent period. You can have early bleeding or late bleeding, or prolonged spotting. These symptoms should resolve after your next menstrual cycle, but that can take a while to come (a month or two!). To be 100% safe, you may want to repeat a pregnancy test in a week or so. Home pt's are very accurate if it has been 2 weeks since conception. ...Read more
