Brief Answer: YOUR NEXT PERIOD WILL BE DELAYED FOR 1 to 2 WEEKS. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for writing to us. First of all, you did safe sex on 8th Dec i.e next day after period over. Taking I-pill within 1 & 1/2 hr after failure of condom gives more than 95% protection against unwanted pregnancy additionally. Second thing, you got withdrawal bleeding on 13th Dec due to effect of the pill. It is quite common and natural phenomena. Most women get this type of bleeding for 3 to 5 days. However, your bleeding was quite long & stopped after treatment with PAUSE. Lastly, your next period will be delayed for 1 to 2 weeks from original due date and you can consider that 13th Dec was the D1 of your previous cycle. Hormonal imbalance and mental stress are the main cause for late period. Hope, it helps for your information. Kindly, close the discussion if you don't have any other query. Wish your good health and practice safe sex always. Regards, Dr Soumen For future query, you can directly approach me through WWW.WWWW.WW

Brief Answer: CHANCE OF PREGNANCY IS ALMOST NIL. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for follow up query. If you did sex on 8th Dec only, then there is NO chance of pregnancy if previous cycle was quite regular. In that case, you wouldn't be worried. Good luck and all the best.
