hi,
Thanks for the query.

as you took the tablet at the time of your menstruation, if you are having regular periods, then your ovulation might have completed in the middle of the cycle as usual.
actually your first day of menstruation should be 28th XXXXXXX as you started bleeding but as you interfered with menstrual flow and stopped with tablet, now you can consider your first day as 4th July.

after taking these tablets some irregularities in menstruation like delay in onset of next cycle etc are common.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.

hi,

as you had periods on 4th July, it is possible that you might have ovulated after that and fertilization occurred during that period.
according to your history the gestational age could be around 5 weeks.
you can go for ultrasound once preferably trans vaginal which can detect the gestational age.

Wish you Good Health, If you are satisfied with my response please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.
