I had my periods on 4th april. And then me and my boyfriend we had sex on 14th and 15th as well. Though he ejaculated outside but to be on a safer side I took a pill in the noon time. Its been 10 days I haven't bled. Is there something that I should be worried about or its just because I just had my periods so there is no real possible way of withdrawal bleeding?

Withdrawal bleeding from emergency contraceptive pills does not happen for all women. It depends a lot on your natural hormone levels, and where in your cycle you were when it happened.

Your next real menstruation will very likely be delayed, so do not panic when that happens. It is because the pills halt your cycle, and after the hormones are gone, your body must restart your cycles. This takes time.

Please make another plan. Pull-out is not a safe way to prevent pregnancy. Especially when you cannot afford to get pregnant, or you are not experienced sexually with this partner.

Contraceptive pills may cause heavy bleeding, after being delayed in a menstrual cycle.
