Doctor :  
so from past 6 months ur periods are regular??
User :   ya
Doctor :  
ok
Doctor :  
relax...nothing to worry
Doctor :  
pregnancy is not the only reason for missing periods
User :   But i am scared as i dont want to get pregnant
Doctor :  
as u told u took tabs little late this time..may be that is the reason...
User :   Should i take test again tommorrow
Doctor :  
as ocps contain harmones once if u change the rhythm ....the there will be slight harmonal imbalance which may lead to delay in one or two days
Doctor :   i suggest u to wait for 2 more days and see
Doctor :  
and continue tabs till u get periods
Doctor :  
atleast 3 more days
User :   But if after 2 days if it is positive then what are the pills i can take
Doctor :  
if it is positive then there is no use taking pills
Doctor :  
u can abort the fetus as early as possible
User :   i am talking about the abortion pills
Doctor :   ook

Doctor :  
are u working/housewife??
User :   Working from home
Doctor :  
are u very much stressed for any reason??
User :   No
Doctor :  
cos stress also will lead to delayed pills
Doctor :  
there is a tablet by name mifeprex which u can take as early as possible after confirmation
Doctor :  
but it should be prescribed by a doctor and use it under the guidence of doctor
User :   How to take it and whether it is available at chemist
User :   But is it possile that i may get pregnant
User :   Because i am taking the pills very regularly
Doctor :   there are very minute chances lets say some 2 percent as the ocps are best method for contraception
Doctor :  
but nothing to worry..the reason will be because of delay in taking tablets..
User :   I am also praying
Doctor :  
i can understand..dont take too much of stress as i told it will occur only in one in 100 and that it is just delay in one day...
User :   Can you suggest me any clinic or hospital near M.G. Raod where i can go, if after 2 days it doesnt come
Doctor :   ok
User :   And generally if you are pregnant than you get to know about this as soon as you miss your period by one day
Doctor :  
yes
User :   Then mine is negative today
Doctor :   yes but repeat it after 2 days
User :   Are abortion pills safe
Doctor :  
yes they are safe till 8 weeks of pregnancy
User :   Fine i will wait for 2 days
User :   But sometime i get stomachahe as i get in periods
Doctor :  
ok
User :   But only for say half an hour
Doctor :  
u are getting stomach pain now??
User :   no not right now
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :  
u mean to say that u are getting stomach pain now,with out periods??
User :   ya but only some time
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :  
when did u do ..pregnancy test morning /evening??
User :   Today morning
Doctor :  
good
Doctor :  
morning is the ideal time as harmonal levels are more in the morning and more chances of test being accurate
User :   I took the first urine test
Doctor :   even after 3 days if u dont get periods then u can go for blood hcg test which will confirm pregnancy or not

User :   So probably i may take 3 more days to get my period
Doctor :  
normally it will be positive even on first day of missing periods but it is better to check after 3 days..
Doctor :   .99.9 percent u are not pregnant...just only 0.1 percent ...chances which we can rule out after 3 days of urine velocit test
User :   But any symptoms which says i am pregnant or not
Doctor :  
u feel vomiting sensation ,reeling sensation
User :   No vomtting sensation what is reeling sensation
Doctor :   feel like falling down
User :   No not at all
Doctor :  
hgood
Doctor :  
dont worry ..u will be fine...within one or two days u will get periods
