Hello doctor,

I had sex with my fiance 10 days back. It was the 12th day after my last period. I took I-pill within two hours of intercourse. But I did not have withdrawal bleeding. Is there any chance to get pregnant?



Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through your history and understand your concerns. As you had I pill, the chances of pregnancy are not there in your case. Every person does not have withdrawal bleeding. You just wait and watch for your menses.


Thank you doctor,

I did not have withdrawal bleeding yet. I took the pill on the 15th. Though I hade some period issue before, it keeps on delaying every month. 1st was my date. Can you please suggest me what should I do?



Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Get your home urine pregnancy test just to rule out pregnancy. Though the chances are very low as you had I-pill (Levonorgestrel) on time.

With I-pill, due to hormonal imbalance, the period may get delayed for one to two months.

Withdrawal bleeding is a side effect of I-pill and does not necessarily occur in every case.
