Hi doctor,

My periods got ended on the 12th of last month and I had protected sex on 15th. As I noticed some semen on me, I took an I-pill on the same day. Then, I got periods after 8 days of I-pill, which lasted for five days as usual. But, the period was not like the way I usually get. There was no heavy flow or continuous flow of blood. The color of the blood was brown. My actual due date is 7th of this month and I missed it now. I am worried whether I am pregnant. Please help me with this issue.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

First of all relax. You are not pregnant. Your periods came early because of I-pill medicine (emergency contraceptive pill).

Sometimes, it can make periods come early and sometimes, it can delay. In your case, it made your periods early.

But, I want to caution you that you should not use I-pill medicine in daily routine as it is a very strong medicine and have side effects also.

In your case, you did not even need to take I-pill because your periods finished on 12th and you had sex on 15th. You cannot become pregnant if you do sex in the first 10 days of your periods.
