Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome,

Please do not worry so much.

The symptoms that you are experiencing are not likely due to pregnancy.

If the date of last period was 6th july, the fertile period begins from around 15 july in most cases with regular cycles. So 10th was almost an infertile day. You used the pull out method and then also had the I pill, so there is no chance of pregnancy.

Also pregnancy, even if it is there, does not cause symptoms so early. If there is a pregnancy the baby takes at least 7 days to get attached to the mother and then the hormone levels that produce the pregnancy symptoms rise. So it takes at least 2 weeks after sex and in most cases almost 3-4 weeks before the symptoms arise.

Your current symptoms are more likely due to the I pill and they are very common after its use. So drink plenty of fluids and eat a balanced diet with lots of fruits to help you deal with them. A tablet like ondansetron will help control the vomiting.
The pill also causes irregular periods so you may experience this in this cycle.

Another thing is the dark urine. This may be due to a liver dysfunction that is known to occur after I pill or may be unrelated to it. Just check to see if your eyes and skin look yellow. If the yellow urine persists then you will need to see a doctor and get blood tested for liver dysfunction.

So do not worry. If you are still worried about pregnancy, get a urine pregnancy test done around 3 weeks after the date of sex to rule it out.

This is most likely the I pill causing side effects and anti vomiting medicines will most likely solve the issue.

Hope this satisfies your query.

Brief Answer:
Most likely the I pill.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome back,

If you say 100% then I do not think anyone can give that guarantee because medicine is not an exact science. There are so many variations. When we give an advice it is based on studies that have been conducted and how the majority of the cases behave.

In your case, the likelihood of pregnancy is negligible. But I cannot say it is zero cause if you are one of the rarest of rare then I may be wrong. So please do not go into these ramifications now. This is the reason I suggested a pregnancy test after 3 weeks so that pregnancy will be ruled out.

Now about menstrual changes. Many women get a period earlier than expected. Some get delayed period. The delay varies form a few days to 2-3 weeks. Some may have a normal period on the regular date but these are rare. The bleeding may also be variable from normal to light to heavy.

As of now I do not think that you need to do anything. Just wait for 3 weeks and get a pregnancy test done. Meanwhile use other contraception like condom. If the test is negative then wait for your period for another 3 weeks. If it is still absent then you may need to see a doctor. I do not think that this will happen. Most likely you will get a period before that.

So please do not worry and do not think about it so much.

Have a nice day and feel free for any further queries.

Take care.

Hello and welcome back,

I understand your problem.

As of now, the only way out is a medical abortion using pills. Pills can be taken till 7 weeks of pregnancy. In your case as the contact was on 4th, the urine pregnancy test must be done on 25th to check for pregnancy [ better do it on 27-30 for better results]. If it is negative, there are no worries. If it is positive [ extremely rare chance] then you can take drugs for medical termination of pregnancy after consulting and examintion by a gynecologist. You can approach someone other than your family doctor.

I also suggest a better and safer as well as more effective method like contraceptive pills, condoms, injections for ensuring ongoing contraception as they are much safer than abortions.

So please do not worry, you are not likely to be pregnant.

Take care.

Hope this satisfies your query.

I am really worried for I have been spotting since Oct.31, 2012. I am 20 years old who have irregular menstrual cycle. I had my last menstruation last Sept.10,2012. Had unprotected sex on Oct.12 but is sure that my boyfriend did not ejaculate inside me(But just to be sure, I had a pregnancy test last Nov.9 and it was negative). On Oct.21, I was prescribed to take Clarithromycin(an antibiotic) for 10 days due to a throat infection and on my last day of medication(Oct.31), I started having brown spotting. I do not know if the antibiotic caused this or what. It is exactly 16 days since I was spotting. I ve seen cervical mucus discharge twice, one is clear with few red in it (I think it is blood), the other is reddish. I am not experiencing any pain in my body. The spotting has no odor. I am not taking any birth control pills. These are all the info I can think of. Is my spotting normal? I am afraid I might have a disease or what. Please do reply.

Hi, I am a 31 year old female with three children. My youngest is 21 months. Over the past 9 months or so I have had very irregular menstration. My normal cycle has always been 28 days with bleeding of 7 days. I had always been regular and never had any fertility problems. I don t take birth control and haven t since 2006. Over the last 9 months I began to bleed a week early and for about 9 days. Then it increased to 11 days and then when it finally reached 14 days I made a doctor appointment. My mother and brother both have hypothyroidism and I have always had high cholesterol that even with diet and medication seldom lowers. I am 5 ft 4.5 and weigh 148 lbs. I noticed about 6 months ago my hair had extremely thinned (very drastic) and has been breaking off. I assumed it was my hair dresser s fault - maybe using cheap products. I haven t gone through anything stressful or major changes that I feel would change my menstration. When the bleeding starts its large bright red drops of blood rather than a slow pink spotting as a general warning (how it used to be). The doctor said I had no cysts or thyroid problems and he prescribed medroxyprogesterone . He told me to take it 7 days before my bleeding starts - for 3 months. Well, I have done this and nothing changed. The first 2 months it seemed to work and I was very regular, then it went back to being abnormal. It was hard to take it 7 days prior to bleeding because I would start on irregular days (way early). I have taken it for 4 months now and I just started bleeding a week early today. I m frustrated about this bleeding but I am worried something could be wrong with me. It just doesn t seem right. He had told me not to worry that everything was fine, and that more than anything this was just an annoying issue for me rather than a concern. I want to get a second opinion. Is this something to be worried about?

Hi, Im a 33yr old Indian woman, recently married. My husband and I decided on birth control pills instead of condoms so i went on the pill a month before the wedding. However the pill caused me considerable mood swings and overall uneasy feelings and i stopped after finishing the first file. Since then my period has become even more erratic than before. Its been 8months since i quit the pill and my periods have not normalized yet. I used to get 4-5 days of period with normal to heavy flow and some blood clots. Now on certain months i get heavy flow or very light flow, duration has also gone haywire...sometimes 3 days or sometimes 7. I ve also noticed blackish dry clots before the onset of my periods now which i never saw before. This month s menstruation is truly baffling me. I was due to stsrt on the 3rd week but i started spotting from the 9th of this month and my period is still on! Flow is very light to medium and has been on for past 9days! I think i should also mention that since i gave up the pill, we are not using any type of birth control. Although i m not ready to be pregnant, my husband insists on going skin to skin :-/ Its been a stressful time for me adjusting to the whole marriage setup and I ve fallen ill a number of times (usually im of pretty robust health) with colds, sore throats, stomach flus. And on top of that my periods have been giving me added tension . Please advice!
