protected sex with my girlfriend. She also had a ipill

User Profile
Hi, I'm 19 years old. Few days back I had protected sex with my girlfriend. She also had a ipill after an hour. We had it before 5-4 days of her menstruation cycle. But, she is not having her periods now. We are very worried. It will be better if you'd assist me on this matter

Thank you

Birth Control Answer A48173
Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The ECP contains high dosages of hormones that can disrupt the usual hormonal pattern causing delay in periods. Wait and watch for her periods that can be delayed due to ECP use. Look out for development of any new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. She should visit her doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance if she does not get her periods within 10 days of expected period dates, or if she gets abnormal bleeding. If pregnancy gets ruled out and if you are not ready for pregnancy, but intend to remain sexually active, you should consider getting her started on suitable regular birth control measures to be protected (after her periods). She should be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact if you are not ready for pregnancy. She should avoid further use of emergency contraception.
Take care.
