Thank you for posting a query.

I can understand your concern. I am giving your answers one by one.

1.     The date of your last menstrual period should be considered as 25th December, not the 17th December.

2.     As your last period was on 25th, then you have done sex before the ovulation. Usually ovulation occurs between 10 to 18 th days of one menstrual cycle.

So, there is very little chance of pregnancy. As you have taken the unwanted 72, the chance of getting pregnant is much lower.

3.     If you become pregnant, after all this, there is medicines like mifepristone which can cause medical termination of pregnancy. But, for this, you should consult with a gynecologist first to avoid any unwanted complications.

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

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.
