Hello doctor,

My fiancee got her periods one and a half months back. She did not get her cycle back again and then a month later, we had unprotected sex and I gave her Unwanted 72 the very next morning after breakfast. It is almost five days now and she still has not got her periods. We both are tensed and want to know why?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Mostly pill is effective if taken within 72 hrs of unprotected intercourse. So, there should not be any chances of pregnancy but still, if tensed, you can do serum beta hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) test to confirm. You can wait for 2 to 3 days for her periods to come as mostly, it will come.

Regards.

Hi doctor,

Thank you for the reply.

She had the pill the next day morning and it is almost five days now. Shall we wait till tomorrow or more than tomorrow?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

After taking progesterone, many a times periods may come till about 7 days, if no pregnancy. As per your explanation, chance of pregnancy is less and delay can be because of stress. You can wait for 2 to 3 days. As by doing that, it will not make any difference if she needs to abort (if by any chance positive).

Hi doctor,

We had a talk about unprotected sex with my girlfriend, and she still has not gotten her periods would she be getting her periods on her normal cycle days, or is there something that I need to worry about?

You should get serum beta HCG (human choriogonadotrophin) test done to confirm.
