Brief Answer:
No chance of pregnancy

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

I understand your concerns about pregnancy possibilities.

Let me reassure you that you are not pregnant.

You had sexual intercourse during safe period and hence no chance of pregnancy.

It is not necessary to have withdrawal bleeding with nordette.

Delayed periods is likely to be due to stress, emotional factors. You will get your periods soon.

Wait for a week. Dont take any medicines
