Brief Answer:
Unlikely to be pregnant

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
You are very unlikely to be pregnant. the reasons are:
as per your description you had intercourse within 3 days after menstruation so you won't release egg within 3 days of period.
second unwanted 72 would change the environment in the uterus and make it non viable for foetus to grow.
The recent bleed can be considered to a side effect of pill.
So be calm and wait for periods to resume. if you are not planning for pregnancy you should take oral pills or use condoms.. unwanted 72 is emergency contraception and not for regular use.
hope this helps.

Unlikely

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Just want to know is this Unwanted 72 or 15 days mensuration have some side effect for my health?

== Not other effects on health with single dose of UNWANTED 72. Please do not take regularly.

Just to correct you i had a sex on 07th day of my period, will it be pregnancy?
== No, I said 3 days after menstruation which means 6th day or 7th day. So my earlier reply still holds good.

And is there be any problem if unwanted 72 is taken in 50hrs instead of immediately been taken?
== Thereotically the tablet has to be taken as soon as possible however the efficacy is would still hold till 72 hours post coitus.

To be personal i am staying away from my in-laws along with my husband in XXXXXXX and got married 07 months back and facing issues related to mensuration irregularities very frequently which brings alot of tension in my mind and had mental stress as we both are not planning for any kid as of now.
1. Will there be any physical issues i be having due to which menses are irregular or its just normal?
2. Should i go for some check-up
3. Will this irregularity of menses have some side effect in my pregnancy in future.
4. Will it be difficult for me to be pregnant later with this irregularity?

Please help me out these last questions and if possible share the details wherein i can meet in person with you.

Brief Answer:
Irregular periods needs evaluation

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Let me answer each question

1. Will there be any physical issues i be having due to which menses are irregular or its just normal?

Irregular period for two months can be normal. If it continues to be unpredictable periods it is not normal. Stress can be a powerful factor for irregular periods.



2. Should i go for some check-up
== Yes you should go for a check up since you have continously unpredictable dates.

3. Will this irregularity of menses have some side effect in my pregnancy in future.
=== Irregular menses are because of many reasons. There are few reasons which cause difficulty in pregnancy like PCOD, progesterone deficiency etc

4. Will it be difficult for me to be pregnant later with this irregularity?
== As said above, if the cause for irregular periods is treated, the pregnancy would not be difficulty. Without regular periods you would not be able to time the intercourse in future for successful pregnancy. The best time for intercourse for pregnancy is from Day 11 to Day 18 in case of regular periods... If it is irregular then you have to take the help of ultrasound to time the release of egg.

I suggest to meet a local OBGYN. I stay far away in south XXXXXXX
