Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Disprin is not a contraceptive. It contains Aspirin which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) and is used for the symptomatic treatment of headache, fever, migraine, and other conditions.

It does not interfere with the fertilization of the ovum or implantation of the zygote. Hence, it is not effective in preventing an unwanted pregnancy following an unprotected sex.

You need to take an emergency contraceptive pill containing Levonorgestrel to prevent an unwanted pregnancy and that too within 72 hours following an unprotected sex.

Since you had sex during your expected period, there is a less chance for pregnancy. However, if your period is delayed for 10 days, get the pregnancy test done and consult a gynecologist.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Mohammed Taher Ali
