Question
hello doc, I had unprotected sex with my GF last march. She took one tab of Unwanted 72 witthin 20 hrs of our first intercourse. after that she had period on time and that was done at endof march.The ususal date of her periods was 25th -28th March and that was done but it has not happened at this month of April yet. Is this delay expected? How many more days should she wait for the periods to happen before going for a pregnancy test?

Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
Since your girl friend had her periods on time in the month of March, pregnancy is ruled out. The delay in periods in the month of April can be due to stress and anxiety or a minor hormonal imbalance if there is no unprotected intercourse during that period.
I believe that your friend should get her periods soon. If at all there are no periods till 10th May, then she should see her doctor. Some blood tests to test for hormonal imbalance that is causing irregular periods is perhaps entailed.

Currently, I suggest you to wait for a week and then if no periods happen then consider consulting a gynecologist.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.

Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
Yes. If she did not have an unprotected sex after her last periods in March then pregnancy is ruled out.
The delay in periods is not worrisome. These should start in next few days.
It is not likely to affect her future pregnancies.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
