User :   hello
Doctor :   hi
User :   doctor i posted u the question
Doctor :  
yes i just finished reading it.
Doctor :  
when was your last normal menstrual period?
User :   it started on 15th feb
Doctor :  
when was your last normal menstrual period before this recent one in february
User :   it was on 14th jan
Doctor :  
and what is your menstrual cycle length? in how many days gap do you get your periods once?
Doctor :  
User :   around 32 days
Doctor :  
Doctor :  
in that case, you would have got your periods after 7 days of taking the pill
Doctor :  
since you took the pill within 48 hours, the chances of pregnancy are very minimal
User :   i got bleeding like periods on 6th march
Doctor :  
get a repeat test done if you do not get your next period on time
Doctor :  
Doctor :  
there are few cycle changes that can happen in women after marriage due to changes in hormones
User :   but what was that bleeding after taking i pill after 7 days
Doctor :  
if you are having any early symptoms of pregnancy like the incresaed fatigue, breast soreness, etc, you should repeat the test
Doctor :  
or do a beta HCG blod test
Doctor :  
which is more confirmatory
User :   i have no such symptoms
User :   i fear if somehow i get pregnant will it effect my baby
Doctor :  
it wil not affect if you get pregnant now, the bledding that you had at that time could be considered as your normal period
Doctor :   or a withdrawl bleed due to the pill use
User :   that means if i got bleeding after taking ecp within 7 days im not pregnant?
Doctor :  
yes, rthe chances are that you are not pregnant, but the confirmation has to be done with a blood HCG level test and a scan if you stil doubt the status.
Doctor :   Is there any thing else I can help you with?
Doctor :   are you there?
Doctor :  
have you followed what I have said?
