Hi
Welcome to XXXXXXX

The post contraceptive pills are very much effective if taken in the first 24 hours after having sexual activity. You have taken them within this time period which means there are less than 5% chances of getting pregnant.

It is not necessary that after taking pills you should bleed immediately or within 4-5 days but the bleeding can occur on your usual dates or it may be occur early or may get delayed. The other important point i would like to mention is that your last period ended on 8th April and you had sex on 14th April. The first week after the end of menstruation is a week where pregnancy do not occurs because the egg is not formed at this stage and you had sex after six days of the last menstruation cycle which mimics the chances of your pregnancy.

To ease your tension and for your satisfaction you can have your blood beta HCG levels checked and it will be confirmed whether you are pregnant or not.

If you still have some query, feel free to ask

Thanks

If you had regular cycles then it means you are not pregnant and you do not need to take any additional medicine or any tests. just go with your normal life.

As i told u earlier that if you had regular periods then it means that you are not pregnant and the endometrium that is responsible for implantation sheds away with bleeding and hence the pregnancy is terminated. Therefore you should not worry and you are not pregnant.
