Can taking 2 pills of unwanted 72 delay my periods for 1 month I had bleeding which was light & lasted for 4 days after 10 days of taking it. Pregnent?

Can be hard to tell: Emergency contraception pills are hormones and alter a woman's periods for that month and the month after. One can take a pregnancy test (follow the instructions on the package) about 3 weeks after sex. If still worried, and if the next period doesn't look or seem normal, one can repeat a pregnancy test. ...Read more

Birth control: It sounds like you did the right thing. You appear to have had sexual contact (pre-cum can make you pregnant) during your fertile cycle. So, taking the emergency birth control pills was the right thing to do. Beyond that any more answer would be pure speculation. ...Read more

Unclear question: If you are trying to find out if you are pregnant, it is not feasible to give an accurate opinion. If you do not wish to be pregnant, please use contraceptive for all sexual encounters, like birth control pills regularly, rather than relying on post-exosure treatment. Also practice safe sex. See this site for more info.

7 days back I had taken an emergency pill unwanted 72 after an unprotected sex I had my periods ended just a day before the act. Now it's bleeding?

Emergency contracept: Emergency contraception causes irregular bleeding. This is normal but is not a normal period. It is hard to say when your next period will occur. The emergency contraceptives need to be taken within 72 hours after sex and waiting 72 hours is pushing the envelop of its effectiveness. I'd suggest a pregnancy test in 3 weeks to be sure as well as starting a reliable method of contraception. ...Read more

Bad idea.: Emergency contraception is to be used when a method of birth control fails. The morning after-pill is not meant to be used after deliberately avoiding one's primary method of birth control. That means a couple who plan to have sex (plan = non-emergency) without birth control needs to rethink their plan. The woman can ask about getting an IUD, which prevents pregnancy for years until it's removed. ...Read more

What are the side effects of unwanted 72. Is it prefered to use unwanted 72 more than 7 times?

Not birth control!: Unwanted 72 is a form of emergency contraception. It is a single-dose pill from my understanding. It is not as effective as other forms of birth control, nor should it be used as a form of birth control - at some point you are going to end up with an un-intended pregnancy. If you are using this on multiple occasions, then make sure you check a pregnancy test and get on some birth control! ...Read more

Hi. After unsafe sex I had unwanted 72 within 3 hrs. Is there possibility of failure of the medicine.???

Yes: Emergency contraceptive pills work most of the time, but not all of the time. An IUD works (as emergency contraception) more reliably than taking pills. In any case, one should do a home urine pregnancy test 3 weeks after sex. As always, life can surprise you, so fertile couples having sex should be ready to raise that rare, surprise baby, if that happens. ...Read more

Likely normal: Past use of morning-after contraception, as well as past use of any form of hormonal birth control, has never been shown to adversely affect pregnancy. Please consider using regular birth control (instead of morning-after) until you decide you'd like to become pregnant, to minimize side effects and offer best protection. ...Read more

Emergency contracept: Emergency contraception is only 95% effective if taken within 24 hours after unprotected intercourse so, if u r not having periods since March 23, it is time to check a pregnancy test to be sure that you aren't in that 5% for whom it doesn't work. If it is negative repeat the test in 3-5 days to be sure. If it is still negative you need to be seen for a full history and exam with appropriate tests ...Read more

Pill was authentic?: A morning-after pill taken the day after sex is very effective in preventing pregnancy. It is about 95% effective, which translates to: if 100 women take the pill the day after sex, about 5 women get pregnant, and 95 will not get pregnant from that sex. The morning-after pill works less well on days 3, 4, or 5 after sex. If no regular period comes in a month, one can do a urine pregnancy test. ...Read more

How to get Pregnant?: First, one does not become pregnant from intercourse during a normal period.

Second, any product for emergency contraception in the U.S. Is very well tested. And, using this product in a timely manner means that pregnancy is unlikely.

Preventing Pregnancy: I am going to be the contrarian here. I will let me colleagues answer you specifically. But, as a teaching moment, why would you not work to prevent pregnancy from the start rather than keep trying to interfere with pregnancy after it occurs? Preventing pregnancy solves two problems; 1. It leads to less unnecessary worrying about unwanted pregnancy. And, two, it leads to more intimacy with bf. ...Read more
