Thanks for the query.

If you are having regular cycles and if you are taking the orgamed tablets in the last week of your menstrual cycle, the chances of pregnancy are very less.
Because the fertile period might have completed by this time.
But if your cycles are irregular and if the fertile period cannot be estimated, you can go for emergency pill.
Because orgamed won't give protection from pregnancy if they are not taken from the beginning of menstrual cycle.
But one thing should be remembered that emergency pill can cause menstrual irregularities. So you have to continue orgamed tablets as usual till the date you want to postpone the periods.
Because of higher dosage of hormones you may have nausea, bloating sensation etc side effects. Usually these will subside soon, if not you can go for symptomatic treatment.
