Hello,
Thank you for posting a question.

You have taken the pill, within 24 hours of having sex. So, there is very little chance of pregnancy.

The pill contains hormonal agents which may alter the hormonal balance of your body. Thus it can cause delay in period. But it is temporary. In this case, you can feel that your period is coming.

But, for confirmation, you should do a home pregnancy test using urine. If it becomes noncontributory, you can do a beta HCG test in your blood or an ultrasound scan of abdomen. Ultrasound scan is the gold standard investigation in this regard.

If the pregnancy test is negative, you can wait for another week. But after that, you should consult with a gynecologist for clinical examination and further management accordingly.

Hope this information suffices. Let me know, if you have any more question.

Regards.

Hi there, I have been on yasmin (pill) since 2012 having never taken the pill before. I was diagnosed with having an ovarian cyst at the time having complained of very painful periods and bleeding in between periods my whole life. Yasmin has been excellent but for the past two months I have experienced bleeding a week before my period. I had another ultra sound and my cyst has grown bigger (before was 5cm ). I feel bloated all the time (even before pill) and find it difficult to pee. I have never been sexualy active so didnt want a transvaginal ultrasound........so my doctor instead told to go on cilest which I am reluctant to use since have read negative reviews. From my brief history do you think yasmin is causing the bleeding? should I take new pill? Any advice on what other steps I can take instead? THANKS
