Hello. I have a protected sex on 10th of April. However, i took postinor-2 pills on the next day morning.
After one week ( 18th), i have vagina bleeding, and it is quite heavy. I feel stomach upset ang dizzy at the same time and it stopped 5days later just like period.
My last period was started at 2nd April and end at 7th. However, my period was late for 5days. I had period cramps and stomach upset at the same time like how i felt for my previous period. So i took sunolut to induce my period. I took 2 pills 2 times a day for 2 days as what my GP had asked me to. She said i will be having my period 1 or 2 days later. But my period still havent come after i stopped for 2 days. I took 2 pregnancy test and it showed negative which i have no pregnant.
Is it because the vaginal bleeding on the 18th of april considered as my period? my breasts feel tender and hurt abit and i have some cramps. Am i pregnant or just because hormone imbalance?
Thank you.

Welcome to e health forum.

It is not likely that you can be pregnant, due to the following factors.

- You had actually had protected sex

- you were most likely not ovulating

- you had used emergency contraceptives as well

Your irregular bleeding is most likely due to imbalance of hormones induced by side effects of the pills you have taken so far.

There is no possibility of pregnancy in your case.
