Does use of emergency contraceptive pills cause delayed periods?
Do one home pregnancy test and consult with doctor.
Thanks for writing to us.
Emergency pill gives more than 85% protection against unwanted pregnancy if it is taken within 48 hrs of unprotected sex.
You got withdrawal bleeding like period on 10th of that month. It is quite common phenomena.
However, your upcoming period may be delayed for 1-2 weeks due to hormonal imbalance and stress.
I suggest you to undergo one home pregnancy test. Depending on test result, you should consult with local doctor for prescribed medicine.
Hope, it helps for your information. Use contraception or practice safe sex in future. Kindly, close the discussion if you don't have any other query.

For future query, you can directly approach me through
I want to know is this to much delay to control pregnancy if the test shows positive result ???
And if posetive I don't want to abort , but is there any other medicinal option still remain to control ????
Medical termination of pregnancy is the only effective method.
Thanks for follow up query.
First of all, you should undergo one home pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy. Morning urine sample is preferable.
On positive test, you should consult with doctor for medical termination of pregnancy, if you are not willing to control pregnancy. It is the only method to stop pregnancy at this stage.
On negative test, norethisterone pill helps to resume your period. However, you need to take a complete prescription from your doctor.
Hope, I have answered your query. Kindly, close the discussion.
All the best and good luck.
