Hi XXXXX

Thanks for the query.

The majority of women will have their period on time or early after emergency contraceptive pills; in others it may be delayed for 3-7 days. You are now overdue by 11 days.

Home pregnancy test may be negative in early pregnancy. In my opinion, you should get a blood test(serum beta HCG levels) to rule out pregnancy.

If that comes out to be negative, you can take some progesterone preparations( like norethisterone) after prescription from a doctor to have your period when you will stop these tablets.You should bleed in 2-4 days after stopping them.



Hope this information is helpful and informative to you.

Hi,

Yes, this is the the only easiest way to rule out pregnancy with confirmation. Other methods may be wrong in very early pregnancy. Blood test will reflect the exact picture.
