Hi doctor,

I took an I-pill after I had sexual intercourse, a month back. My period came seven days before the expected date. The bleeding was brown in color, and it lasted for two and a half days. After that, I did not get my period next month. I am experiencing tenderness in the breast, frequent urination, and nausea from few days. But now, I feel no tenderness. I took a urine test on the day of my missed period, but it was negative. Am I pregnant?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

It is unlikely that you are pregnant.

This often happens after taking I-pill. Nonetheless, I would suggest you confirm the presence or absence of pregnancy by doing a blood test namely the serum beta hCG and share the reports.

If it is negative, then repeat the test after a week, if it is still negative, then no need to do anything.

Use protection during sexual intercourse in the meantime, your periods will start eventually, and then your menstrual cycle will become regular.

Once your cycle is regularized, I would suggest you think of getting regular oral contraceptives pills, as I-pill is not meant to be used except in an emergency

If you have any doubts, please let me know.

Thank you doctor,

Is this the right time to take the beta hCG test? As my periods came early last month, I am only a day late this month. So, is it too early to take the test? Should I wait for few weeks and then take the test?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • As you had sex a month back and not thereafter, it is the right time to do the test.

Thank you doctor,

I did the beta hCG test, but it was negative. I am attaching the reports. I still did not get my periods.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • As per the report (attachment removed to protect patient identity), you are not pregnant.
  • Just repeat the test in a week. If it is still negative, do not do anything. Use protection while having sex, your periods will come in a few days or weeks and then regularize themselves.
  • If you still do not get your periods, let me know, I will tell you how to proceed.

Hi doctor,

Again, I had a pregnancy test, and it is negative. But, my period is one month late. What should I do?

#

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Please get an ultrasound done and share the report for my further opinion regarding your delayed periods.

Hi doctor,

What type of ultrasound should I ask?

#

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

I am sorry. You should ask for a pelvic ultrasound. If you have any urinary complaints, then please do a urine routine microscopy and culture sensitivity test as well. If there is an infection, I will suggest you medicine to sort it out.

Hi doctor,

I got the ultrasound done and here is the report. I was told about a stone in kidney. Is there anything else to worry? What about my periods?

#

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Your reproductive system seems to be fine. With regards to the kidney stone, you need to see a urologist. Meanwhile, please take the following medicine twice a day for five days after food and your menses will come within two weeks of stopping the medication. Tablet Meprate 10 mg (Medroxyprogesterone) twice a day for five days. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and take with consent.
