Hi,
Thanks for the query.

As she took the emergency pill within 72 hours, it can possibly prevent the pregnancy according to manufacturers.
At present nothing can be done.
So better to wait till her expected date of periods.
If she gets the period on time, it is good.
If the period get delayed by one week, better to go for home urine pregnancy test once.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.

Hi,
If the test comes positive, then she has to consult gynecologist and undergo ultrasound to confirm intrauterine pregnancy.
Then with the doctor's advice she can go for medical termination of pregnancy.
But don't worry the possibility of pregnancy is less.

Hello, I m 26 and had a surgical abortion on December 5th 2013, I was 6 weeks pregnant. I had the contraceptive implant fitted at the same time. An ultrasound later that day showed some retained tissue and on the 7th I was given a half dose of the abortion pill to flush the remainder out. I had heavy bleeding and pain for a few days but it settled. However, 5 months down the line I am still having very spotty bleeding, no pain and very light but probably on average 4 days out of 7 every week. I know the implant can cause irregular bleeding but I also notice on a regular basis, tiny scraps of tissue after I pass urine, there is no blood, just a number of pieces of tissue ranging from 2-15mm long. Can you offer any advice? Thank you.
