Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

Before a week, I took a tablet Unwanted-72 within 72 hours after having unprotected sex. I do not have bleeding even after nine days. My last period was before a month. Please help.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Menstrual irregularities, in your case, could be due to hormonal imbalance caused by a contraceptive pill. But there is no chance of pregnancy as you took the tablet on time. Take a home urine pregnancy test a week before your missed period date.
