Thanks for the query.

You have written 26th March instead of February, as your LMP (Last Menstrual Period) was on 12th Feb you have to wait till 12th March.

You have taken emergency contraceptive within 19 hrs so there is no need to worry about pregnancy.

It is not necessary to bleed within a week of taking the pill.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Best wishes.

Take care.

Welcome back.

As you said you had your LMP (Last Menstrual Period) on 12th January so the next period should have come on 12th Feb or near that but if you did not have sex between 12th XXXXXXX to 26th Feb then there is no chance of pregnancy.

If you had unprotected sex before that then there are chances of pregnancy but there is no harm in doing pregnancy test at home with kit available over the counter.

Hope I answered all your questions. If you do not have any more queries, please close this discussion.

Take care.
