Hi my name is XXXXXXX My girlfriend's usual menstruation is on last week or first week of the following month,mostly on 28th. We had unprotected sex on 14th of last month and it happened to be an irregular period of 3 days from that day. Soon after sex she had unwanted 72 pill. She did not have period that month and this month is almost coming to end. its about one and half month since her last unusual period. What if she don't bleed she pregnant? Or the delay is because of the unwanted 72 pill. We both are afraid now. she have mild fever and headache too. What should we do if she don't bleed this time......please suggest

Welcome and thanks for the query

As your girlfriend has taken an emergency contraceptive pill soon after the unprotected intercourse so there are less chances of pregnancy.The tablet may cause delayed periods in some cases but it is better to do pregnancy test with kit at home.
If the test is negative then you don't have to worry , just wait for couple of days , the periods will start on its own.For fever and headache she can take paracetamol.
Best wishes
