Brief Answer:
pregnancy unlikely

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX its unlikely that you are pregnant at this time due to several reasons. Firstly, you had protected sex with a condom. Secondly , your sexual encounter took place on day 18 of your cycle, by which time, ovulation has usually occcured. Thirdly you have had bleeding for 4days on time. You can of course take a pregnancy test but covering all bases its unlikely you are pregnant. If you have had a period for 3-4 days and used at least 2 pads a day, its considered normal. Take the test for surety. Buy its unlikely to be a problem.

thnks mam , is my periods scanty becoz of ormeloxifene ? nd if i want to take pregnancy test then when should i ?

Brief Answer:
take the test now

Detailed Answer:
yes, the decreased bleeding can be due to the ormeloxifene. It is a form of contraceptive if taken regularly as advised by a doctor. You can take the pregnancy asap since you are already bleeding. I suggest you use a contraceptive for regular use. But yiu shoud know that ormeloxifene isnt to be used as a emergency contraception.

Brief Answer:
do the tests asap

Detailed Answer:
You can do the test within the day. But make sure the urine is not contaminated with blood since you are bleeding. It is a non steriodal contraceptive but not effective as a emergency contraceptive for which is hormone drug called progestin is used. You can however use it as a regular contraception.
