Brief Answer:
Urine pregnancy test

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, thanks for trusting health care magic
I understand your anxiety about the issue.
Most likely this is all due to the emergency pill intake but still do a urine pregnancy test to be doubly sure.
If negative then nothing to worry about. Avoid taking emergency pills every now and then.
Take care

Brief Answer:
Yes dear at least a pregnancy test is needed

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear, pregnancy test is a must to rule out pregnancy completely.
But in my opinion there seems no risk of pregnancy and all these symptoms are due to emergency pill only.
Next month you will get proper periods and eventually everything will return to normal.
This nose bleed is because of changing season and is unrelated to periods
All the best

hello, I was cleaning and working up a real sweat. I bent down to pick up something and when I stood up, my heart felt like it was flopping around. I got freaked out and my anxiety started to really act up. I went to sit down and had a drink of water, trying to cool down, and it started up again for a few seconds. That freaked me out and I had a full out anxiety attack, and started shaking and hyperventilation. Now im freaked out and keep pacing around, im not sure if its going to happen again. With my last pregnancy, i was on metoprolal(spelling) cuz i had heart palpitations frequently and I didnt want it to be anything serious. I had a ultrasound done on my heart in sept 2009, and my cardiologist said my heart structure was nice and strong. I am going through a lot of stress between work and home, and i am currently on .25mg of alprozalom 2 times daily to help with anxiety. But today really freaked me out!
