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.

After I took escapelle my periods came early and then the following month they didn't came why?

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

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

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.

Hi I took escapelle 4 hrs after having sex and now my period is 2days late need to worry?

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.

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

See below: 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.

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

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
