Getting Pregnant Answer A40752
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Taking emergency contraceptive closer to or around your expected period dates can cause delay in your periods or period abnormalities (due to high hormonal content of the ECP). Wait and watch for your periods that can be delayed due to the ECP used. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation, clarification and assistance. If pregnancy gets ruled out, and if you are not ready for pregnancy, but intend to remain sexually active, you should consider visiting your gynecologist to get started on suitable regular birth control measures to be protected (after your periods). Be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact if not ready for pregnancy. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
