Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   How can I help you?
User :   My girlfriend and I had sex october 23rd and during which the condom broke. About 4 hours after she took the Plan B pill. Her last period was on October 1st and she has yet to have her next one. Is she pregnant or is the combination of the Plan B pill and the stress from her job delaying her period?
Doctor :   Were her periods regular in the past?
User :   They usually were, a couple years back she missed one
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   Let me brief you.
Doctor :   Since both pregnancy and the other causes (pill and stress) can induce menstrual irregularities, hence its difficult to predict based on clinical symptoms alone.
Doctor :   Hence I would suggest you to consider taking the pregnancy test ( as there are reports of contraceptive failure)
Doctor :   A better decision can be done, if pregnancy can be ruled completely.
Doctor :   Have you followed what I have suggested?
User :   Not yet
User :   Okay yeah i get it
Doctor :   Do you have any other query?
