Brief Answer:
your chances of pregnancy are minimal.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query to hcm,
Firstly which pills have you taken for 6 days ? it is important to learn because ECP or emergency contraceptive pill is to be taken only once within 72 hrs of intercourse.
If you have started the bleeding it indicates that you are not pregnant but the ideal way would be to get a serum beta hcg test done. If the chg levels are less than 3mIU then you are not pregnant.

My 17 year old daughter has struggled with sever abdominal pain, constipation and severe rectal pain since she was 7 or 8 years old. The other day she had a terrible episode that left her screaming for help. She stated the pain was sharp in her rectal and went up to the pelvic area. Soon after the pain started she made a bowel movement and the pain subsided. When she was younger she saw many doctors who didn't seem to know what the problem was, but somehow she was given the diagnosis of IBS. We do not believe it is IBS - what type of doctor should she see to try to find out the cause? I need to know the type of specialist, thanks!

Hi, I am a 20 year old female. Recently I just got a fever, with headaches, chills, sweating at night, huge loss of appetite (barely are anything the past two days) and stomach pain. I just finished my period as well and I noticed yesterday that my urine was murky? I don t have any pain in my pelvis area or have the urge to urinate a lot, besides abdominal pain. This abdominable pain is different from my usual cramps. I got it yesterday after my period finished. And occasionally some pain in my joints.
