Hello,

Thanks for posting your query.

A period overdue by only 5 days might be suggestive of pregnancy. If she has not had her period till now then repeat urine for pregnancy test is advisable to rule out pregnancy.

If the pregnancy is ruled out then other factors need to be considered like hormonal imbalance, emotional upset, anxiety, stress, or other medical conditions that affect the ovaries, uterus, hypothalamus, or pituitary gland. Hypothyroidism, post pill amenorrhea, polycystic ovarian syndrome or less frequently a pituitary tumor causing high prolactin levels or a hypothalamic disease are other causes that need to be considered.

If this has happened for the first time then after ruling out the pregnancy she can wait for few more days for the periods to come.

In case the periods are still absent then she needs to visit her gynecologist to undergo physical check up and also to undergo relevant investigations required to find out the cause so that treatment can be given accordingly.

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.

Hello,

Thanks for writing again.

Since she has taken unwanted 72 twice in last 35 days, it might be causing the delay in her bleeding.

Taking the emergency contraceptive within 24 hours of unprotected sex provides 95% protection against pregnancy.

She can wait for her periods to come.

Repeated intake of emergency contraceptives causes such menstrual irregularities and delay in periods.

The pregnancy is not likely with negative urine tests.

I hope this answer is helpful. Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.

Wishing you good health.

Hello and thanks again,

The Unwanted 72 is a single dose tablet and should be taken as early as possible and not later than 72 hours of unprotected sex or contraceptive failure. It is not effective if taken 72 hours after unprotected sex. It is 95% effective within 24 hours of unprotected sex, 85% between 25 - 48 hours and 58% if taken between 49 - 72 hours.

Now, if her pregnancy test is negative then the chances of being pregnant are minimal.

The kits available in the market are accurate and the results can be relied upon if the kit used is from a good company. If doubtful, you can be doubly sure by getting serum Beta Human chorionic gonadotropin levels checked.

Hope this clarifies your doubts. Please accept the answer if you do not have any further queries.

Take care and Regards.
