Brief Answer:
No chance of pregnancy. Bleeding due to unwanted pill.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, Dr Purushottam Neurgaonkar here. I welcome you to HCM VIRTUAL CLINIC. I have gone through your question, and I think I have understood your concern. I will try to suggest you the best possible treatment options.

1 ) First of all do not panic.

2 ) in a woman with regular cycles day 10 to 20 of the cycle is the most fertile period of cycle. If unprotected sex act occurs in this period, then there is possibility of getting pregnant.

3 ) As in this case unprotected sex act occurred on day 5 of the cycle, and she also took emergency contraceptive pill, the chances of getting pregnant are almost nil.

4 ) The bleeding episodes that she had experienced can be due to high doses of progesterone hormone contained in the emergency pill. This pill is known to cause erratic bleeding pattern, it can cause very scanty or heavy bleeding or very early or delayed bleeding.

5 ) If there is any doubt , I will suggest to get morning's first sample of urine tested for pregnancy. If it is negative then you can wait for the onset of periods.

I hope this answer helps you.

Thanks.

Brief Answer:
UPT can be done now.

Detailed Answer:
Hi there,

thanks for appreciating the answer and reverting back.

Please do not panic.

As she had an episode of 5 days bleeding from XXXXXXX 30, it is almost a month back.
So it is advisable to get morning's first sample of urine tested for pregnancy on August 2 or 3.

I suppose there was no unprotected sex activity in the month of July, after the 5 days bleeding episode had occurred. If not, chances of she being pregnant are almost nil.

I hope this answer helps you.
Please feel free to communicate about this , if needed.

Thanks.
Dr. Purushottam Neurgaonkar
