if you test positive and don't want it means it will be an abortion which can be done medically or surgically. the first step is to do urine preg test with first morning sample. if positive to do a Transvaginal scan at 35 days from day one of last periods. you may then take abortion pills typically given over 48 hours and a repeat ultrasound after 2 weeks. I can t give you the names as a written consent on form c is a must as per govt regulations . the other method is surgical wherein ultrasound guided clearance is done under anaesthesia. best wishes

normally there shouldn't be any impact on conception. pills are best taken between 5-7 weeks preg

hi doc .. i did the preg test on the 5th day after i missed my cycle. The test shows negative. happy that its negative , but have a doubt if its to early to test. Last month i had taken pills to postpone my periods by a week, do you think that has affected my cycle date?

normally urine pregnancy test is positive after missed periods. to be on the safer side pl repeat the urine test after one week . normally it's recommended to do urine preg test weekly till next periods. blood preg test is more accurate than urine preg test

Hi, I've been on ovranette for about four years as my dr thinks that my periods were causing my epileptic seizures, over the last few weeks I've had some bleeding every few days. I don't follow the four week cycle, I'm prescribed the pill for every day without a seven day break so why am I bleeding?

About a year ago, I started seeing white spots on my legs...they have multiplied rapidly. The dermatologist diagnosed it as Vitiligo. I am currently applying Pigmento ointment (charak). I was sent Vitiligo 30 sublingual pills from Biogetica, as well as Pigmento Tablets. I am a breast cancer survivor (2), and have had reconstruction. I am 68, and 5 4 tall...weigh 154 lbs. I am really scared to ingest the pills for fear that it will do liver damage. One of the pills contain Arsen Sulph . How harmful is this? Please advise. Thank you. Juliet

Hi me and my bf had unprotected sex last month before my period and due to my work schedule I wasn t able to visit the clinic until the following Monday which was the fifth day afterwards after I took the pill I had sore breast, hot flashes and lower back pain then I got what I thought was my period which was extremely lighter then normal and brown. Usually my period last about 6or 7 days this last time it was about 4 to 5 pasty, dark brown, and some days wouldn t bleed at all then spot the next. I took a test (a cheap 99 cent store one) and it said negative. This month it s time for me to have my period again and I have no signs of it coming. No bloating, salt craving, mood swing, sharp pains...nothing. I m not pregnant right??
