User :   please help me
Doctor :   Are you regular with Krimson 32?
User :   yes
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   If you have been on the pills regularly, you have been protected against the chances of pregnancy.
Doctor :   In your describe circumstances the chances of you getting pregnancy is very faint,
Doctor :   less than 10% I would say.
User :   but is it okay that i took the unwanted 72 pill so quickly....i mean just after unprotected sex...
User :   i have severe lower abdominal pain since the sex........and it is still on....and my stomach is a bit tight and this a sign of getting pregnant
Doctor :   The use of unwanted 72 was not warranted.
Doctor :   The symptoms that you presently notice can be the effects of the unwanted 72 pills.
Doctor :   And not a sign of pregnancy.
User :   so u mean i should not get any pregnancy test done...because i really dont want to get pregnant
Doctor :   As I mentioned earlier, your chances of pregnancy are very insignificant - less than 10%.
Doctor :   Unwanted 72 contains synthetic progesterone, the same hormone secreted during pregnancy.
Doctor :   This can induce symptoms similar to pregnancy.
User :   like bloating of stomach ??
Doctor :   You can have along the the abdominal pain, soreness of breast, nausea, vomiting, low back ache.
Doctor :   Yes, abdominal bloating and off course the mood fluctuations too.
Doctor :   These effects slowly fade away with time.
User :   what about my period irregularities??
Doctor :   Your periods can get disturbed too due to the addition of unwanted 72 with your usual pills.
User :   but i have cyst doctor....
Doctor :   The chances that these symptoms are due to pregnancy are less than 10%
Doctor :   So you need not worry.
Doctor :   Since most often patients suffer from anxiety till they make sure that the are not pregnant, you can consider getting a pregnancy test.
Doctor :   A negative report on the pregnancy test will ease and destress your mind.
Doctor :   Have you followed what I have suggested?
User :   yes can i get a home based strip test for pregnancy???
Doctor :   Yes, a negative result will give you the much needed peace of mind.
Doctor :   So go ahead and get the test.
Doctor :   Have you followed?
User :   but i have cyst doctor...
Doctor :   Ovarian cyst do not impair the levels of HCG.
Doctor :   So they will not affect the pregnancy tests.
