Hello
Welcome to health care magic forum
you have not mentioned about sexual exposure at all.If you had unprotected sex after postinor ,chances of pregnancy can`t be ruled out.Go for pregnancy test
Wish you good health

Hi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Since you took Postinor 2 which is an emergency contraceptive that means you are sexually active and had fear of getting pregnant.Also you had regular period in April so you should have got periods or may get in a couple of days.If you still had unprotected sex in this month of April and you don't get periods by 5th of May then get a urine pregnancy test done on 6th to rule out pregnancy.
Thanks

Hi, thanks for query.Normally after this kind of tablets you should have withdrawal bleeding.This tablets is effective if taken within 72 hours of of the unprotected act.If you do not get your periods please talk to your doctor.But please make sure to use a protection in future.bye.

Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
If you have had Unprotected sex recently, you should be getting a Urine Pregnancy test done one week after missing your Periods using a Early Morning Urine Sample which is the ideal time to detect Pregnancy. If it turns out negative, you may have Missed Periods as a result of Hormonal Imbalance as a result of taking Postinor. You can just wait for them to occur on their own. If they don't, you should be seeing a Gynecologist.

Good Luck.

i am a women aged 28. My period cycle was regularly of 11 or 12 th of each month. However, the same has been delayed by 3 days this time. Once few days back while i was about to get indulged in intercourse my husbands condom bursted before penetration. However, he did ejeculated at that time and his sperm was spilt on my vagina a bit. So to avoid pregnanacy, i immediately washed of my vagina as well as its near by areas. Can this be one of the reason for delay. Will i be pregnant due to such incident.

I'm definitely not sexually active, but yesterday I found this purplish brownish discharge in my underwear. I'm supposed to start my period in about a week and am on birth control for my migraines. I put a tampon in and took it out later to see if I could figure out if it was blood or whatever it was. But it didn't smell right or look right. When I put it in the toilet it filled up with water and definitely showed that it was, in fact, a purple. Could you tell me what it possibly is? Maybe a side effect of the sronyx(the birth control I'm using)? I'm going off of that soon because of other side effects, so is that a possibility?

I've been having dark brown discharge about a week before my period. I am on birth control, I take the pills. Sometimes I take it a couple hours later than I should and I sex with my boyfriend. I had sex with my boyfriend when I was supposed to start my period in May but it never came because I spotted in the middle and had switched birth controls. I then had sex with him again but when I was on the pill on the 15th and he did NOT cum inside of me. Could I be pregnant?
