Hi doctor,

I had sex on 13th of this month and my period was due on the 20th. But, it has not come yet. I took I-pill within one hour of intercourse and due to lack of knowledge took one more dose the next day. Now I am worried. Will overdose of I-pill affect my body? Also, I did my urine pregnancy test after 4 days of missing my period and it was negative. What to do?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I had gone through all the data you have posted.

  • Kindly calm down and repeat urine pregnancy test after four days and wait for your periods.
  • If you do not get periods within another four days, then repeat urine pregnancy test and consult your gynecologist for ultrasound examination.

Thank you doctor,

Should I take a blood pregnancy test for the confirmation? Also, I have heard that the delay in periods is also one of the side effect of i-pill. Is it true?

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • As you said it is already four days, so you can wait for another four days and repeat urine pregnancy test and blood hCG level (human chorionic gonadotropin).
  • If you do not get periods after four days, then you need to consult a gynecologist for a physical evaluation.

Thank you doctor,

I am feeling some changes in my body like gas, weakness, heaviness in the stomach and pain in my lower body. Are these symptoms of pregnancy? How can I come out of these things?

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • So, there is no definitive test that can rule out pregnancy now, even an ultrasound.
  • I suggest you to be patient and repeat urine pregnancy test and blood hCG after four days and consult a gynecologist if your reports are abnormal or if you do not get periods.
