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

Doctor thanks for your answer. But Doctor I had periods which was 4 days late only but today after a month now after I had sex, I did not have brown bleeding and is stopped now, was there for 2 days very light. But Doctor in the morning I had bleeding from the nose..a bit and got pimples too on my neck, face and waist. Doctor I don't want to do pregnancy test and nor I want to visit doctor.

I don't want to go to doctor and do pregnancy test. Please suggest asap.

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
