Brief Answer:
WITHDRAWAL BLEEDING. LOW CHANCE.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for writing to us.

I-pill gives more than 85% protection when it is taken within 24 to 48 hrs. Your chance of pregnancy will be extremely LOW if you DIDN'T involve in unprotected sex during your fertile days or ovulation time (14 days prior to due date).

Second thing, you got brown discharge due to effect of the pill. It is withdrawal bleeding. It is quite common and physiological phenomena. Just maintain genital hygiene properly and it will stop automatically.

Third thing, your next period may be delayed for 1 to 2 weeks due to hormonal imbalance and stress. However, you should wait for next period and if it delays more than 1 week, then you must undergo one home pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy. Your test is INVALID.

Hope, it helps for your information. Kindly, close the discussion if you don't have any other query.

Wish your good health and practice protected sex in future.

Regards,
Dr Soumen

Brief Answer:
NO CHANCE OF PREGNANCY. NO NEED TO WORRY.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thank you for worthy information.

Now things are very clear to me. You DID SAFE sex according to last period date and took I-PILL additionally after 30 hrs.

You got withdrawal bleeding (brown discharge) after taking the pill. It is quite common phenomena.

Here, you have NO chance of pregnancy. However, your period may be delayed for 1-2 weeks due to hormonal imbalance. Don't be worried much.

Hope, I have answered your query and it is easier to understand. Kindly, close the discussion and rate the answer.

All the best and good luck.

Regards,
Dr S Patra.

You are most welcome in this platform.

Practicing protected sex with condom in safe period NEVER let you be pregnant. So, you MUST mind it this GOLDEN word. Be positive.
