Hi,
Thanks for the query.

Usually the tablets used to postpone the periods will not give protection towards pregnancy.
But as you got withdrawal bleeding after stopping the tablets the chance of pregnancy is less.
The cause for your missed periods could be hormonal imbalance due to using additional dose of hormones in the form of pills to postpone the periods.
And also now your last menstrual date will become the date when you got bleeding after stopping the tablets.
So if you didn't get periods even after one month from that date, once go for pregnancy test to rule out the possibility.
If the test comes negative wait for one more week, possibly by that time you will get periods.
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,
The possibility of pregnancy is less as you used condom and had withdrawal bleeding.
Now you once consult gynecologist, get examined and go for ultrasound.
Ultrasound can rule out the possibility of pregnancy and if there is pregnancy it can find out the gestational age also.
According to the gestational age you can choose the method of abortion with your doctor's advice. In early gestation medical abortion with tablets can be done.
You can choose any good hospital near to you. Better options are Manipal hospital, Apollo hospital, MS Ramaiah hospital etc.
Wish you Good Health, If you are satisfied with my response please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.
