Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My partner had her periods last to last month. Sixteen days later, we had a sexual intercourse. But, there was neither penetration nor ejaculation. Being unsure about the seminal fluid discharge or coming in contact with her genitals, I gave her Unwanted 72 the next day which was within 48 hours. Later, she went through its general side effects but without withdrawal bleeding. Further, she got her periods last month which as per her was her usual bleeding except for the first day as it was little heavier than normal and it continued for four to five days.

After a few days of her periods, she told me about feeling nausea, headache, dizziness and a discharge which continued for two to three days.Now, in this month she got her periods two days later which again was normal as per her and yesterday she again felt nauseated. Please help me. Is there anything to be worried about? Are there any pregnancy chances? She had a normal cycle of 28 days and she got vomiting two days before. Please help me with your advice.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

As long as she is having regular periods of normal flow and quantity there is no need to worry. There is a complete absence of periods in pregnancy, sometimes early pregnancy bleeding known as implantation bleeding does occur but it is very light and lasts only a couple of days. Nausea and vomiting that she is experiencing are most likely due to hormonal imbalance due to the emergency contraceptive pill. Do not worry. However, if you are still very anxious you can do a pregnancy test with a sample of early morning urine and check the results. That should ease any remaining doubts.
