Hello.

Thanks for the query.

It is normal to have irregular or delayed periods after taking emergency contraceptive pills like unwanted 72. Do not panic.

It is true that emergency contraceptives are not full proof but they are fairly effective.
Please take a urine pregnancy test to confirm pregnancy. Urine pregnancy test kit is easily available in any pharmacy.

I hope I have answered your query, please accept my answer if you have no further queries.

I wish you good health.

Regards.

Hello.

Thanks for replying.

Unwanted 72 contains Levonogestrel and it's effectiveness is 90%.

That means there are only 10% chances of pregnancy after taking the pill. So don't be panic. Take the urine pregnancy test and see if your partner is pregnant or not.

I hope I have answered your query, please accept my answer if you have no further queries.

I wish you good health.

Hello

Thanks for replying

If she is pregnant and both of you dont want the pregnancy then you can go for an MTP ( Medical Termination of Pregnancy ) which can be done by taking tablets, these tablets have to be prescribed by an obstretician. Most of the times admission into a hospital is not required and these tablets can be taken on an out patient basis but with regular follow ups.

I hope I have answered your query, if there are no further queries please accept my answer

I wish you good health
