Brief Answer:
Rare chance of pregnancy. Stop pills to get period.

Detailed Answer:
Hello Dear,

Thanks for writing to us. Followings are my comments:

1) If you did sex on expected date of period (29th or 30th), then your chance of pregnancy is extremely RARE (due to SAFE sex). I am assuming your previous cycle was quite regular.

2) FEMILON can be used as emergency pill if it is taken in RIGHT way (i.e 4 pills within first 24 hrs and next 4 pills after 12 hrs).

As you had taken those pills around expected date of period and then, further continued, your period may be delayed due to hormonal imbalance.

3) I suggest you to stop taking those pills and wait for 3 to 5 days to get your period. Maintain genital hygiene and be stress free.

Hope, it helps for your information. Practice safe sex in future also.

For future query, you can directly approach me through
