Hello doctor,

I had unprotected sex with my fiancee a month back. She took I-pill within 12 hours. After two days, she had withdrawal bleed for three days. She was supposed to get her periods in a few days. But, till date, she did not get it. She has thick white secretions and pimple from past three days. Is she pregnant? For how many days can she wait?



Welcome to

I have gone through your question and I understand the concern. I-pill (emergency contraceptive pill) causes the next expected periods to be delayed by two to three weeks. I will suggest her to get a urine pregnancy test done. If negative, then she can safely wait for the periods for another two weeks.

Thank you doctor,

Yes, she got UPT done today and it was negative. Now she has lower back pain. Even after two weeks if she does not get her periods, does she has to repeat the test?



Welcome back to

Yes, she should repeat the UPT (urine pregnancy test). Lower back pain can be due to impending periods.
