Brief Answer:
Urine pregnancy test advised

Detailed Answer:
Hello mam, thanks for trusting health care magic.
This delay is most probably due to postpone tablet only but still do a urine pregnancy test and see the result.
In case negative then nothing to worry and just wait for your periods.
All the best

Thanks for the reply.... Few questions..Is there a chance of pregnancy in safe period also.. Can a home pregnancy test be taken.. If there is no withdrawal bleeding dies that mean am pregnant... How long does the period get delayed approx.

Brief Answer:
Negligible chance of pregnancy

Detailed Answer:
Yes home pregnancy test can be taken, just buy a test kit from market and do it yourself.
Yes you were definitely in safe period at that time but at times ovulation occurs some days prior and sperms usually stay fertile for 3-5 days in vagina and thus though rare but there is a possibility of pregnancy.
Absence of withdrawl is not at all related to possibility of pregnancy and rather is only related to the days of cycle in which tablet was taken.
All in all you have very less chance of pregnancy but still better to do test to stay relieved from anxiety

Brief Answer:
Wait for a week more

Detailed Answer:
Just wait for another week and no need to repeat the test as it would have cone positive by now for sure in case that act had resulted in pregnancy.
You will get your periods in coming week most likely.
All the best.

Brief Answer:
Take progesterone for withdrawal of menses

Detailed Answer:
I understand your anxiety and I'm sorry for the delay in response as I was struck in some emergency surgery.
Don't panic and just take tablet meftal spas for pain.
I think your periods are on their way but still in case you want take withdrawal by taking progesterone then visit your gynecologist for prescription.
Iny opinion give her the history of postpone 72 but in case you want to hide then she will not get to know about the pill intake.
Take care

Can start deviry

Hi, for a while now I have been getting dizzy and light headed when I stand up. I ve also been extremely tired to the point where I feel like I can t do anything. My GP tested my thyroid and my iron levels and they were fine but i m still getting these symptoms only now for the last few days I have been extremely thirsty, especially in the evening where I can drink 5 or 6 large glasses of water in the space of 2 hours. I am thinking perhaps I should go back to my GP for more tests I also suffer from constipation and stabbing , almost crippling, stomach pains due to this.
