Brief Answer:
Please wait for a few days, you will have your period for sure.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing to us with your health concern.
There are no chances of a pregnancy in your case because -
1. Having intercourse on the 6th day of periods is safe, ovulation is impossible at this time.
2. You used a condom which was intact, as checked by you.
3. You took unwanted 72 in addition.
4. You took a test on the 4th of January which is quite reliable since you did not have sex after the 17th of November.
Regarding the confusion of the repeated test, it is possible that you misread the results.
If you wish, you can repeat a test again, and upload the report ( photographic image of the strip ) to me, so that I can again reassure you.
As such, based on your history, I am 100 % sure that you are not pregnant, it cannot be.
The unwanted 72 can lead to menstrual delay by itself.
Also, after finishing Meprate, withdrawal bleeding occurs within a week.
Since you have stopped on the 17th of January, you will bleed anytime uptil the 24th of January.
SO do not worry, wait for a few days.
Take care.

Brief Answer:
Need to relax, these are pre menstrual symptoms.

Detailed Answer:
WHy dont you upload a snap of a new UPT ?
That way you will be reassured.
ALso since you have taken Meprate, you are feeling pre menstrual symptoms.
I can totally understand your anxiety, but these menstrual irregularities are common after taking emergency pill and Meprate.
Dont stress out so much, it will only lead to more delay in periods.
RElax and trust me, you will have your period soon.

Brief Answer:
All answered one by one.

Detailed Answer:
Hi again.
I can totally understand your anxiety.
Let me clarify the remaining doubts for you -
1. You have mentioned the tablet cyst forte for the first time, there was absolutely no need to take it ! Just like there was no need for Meprate - since you have taken them now, no harm done. Since you have taken it, no issue, you can still take the blood test on the 24th of January.
2. NO Meprate does not affect either the blood or the urine pregnancy test.
3. Yes, a blood sample is taken via needle prick, sample can be given at any time of the day, empty stomach is not required.
4. Yes, the test completely confirms pregnancy.
5. Yes, will await the pics.
No again, Meprate will not affect the test results.
Furthermore, I think you will definitely bleed by then.
You have to take my word for it.
Else if the pregnancy test is negative, then please go for a pelvic ultrasound scan and hormonal levels to know the reason for missed periods.
Relax, I am 100 % sure that you are not pregnant.
Take care.

I have been having alot of stress lately and also trying to get over this kill cold. I have been taking tylenol allergy and sinus each day, the liquid, but haven't gone over the directed amount. Now I am having a slightly irregular heart beat, like, 1, 2, 345, 6, 7, 8, 91011, 12, 13. Something like that. It's kind of scary but isn't producing any symptoms like tired, dizzy, nothing. Should I worry? The heartbeat thing has been going on for about a day, the cold is almost gone now so I stopped with the meds. Thanks, Matthew
