hello
welcome to healthcare magic
if your having a proper period with good flow like you have in your normal periods then its ok. the emergency contraceptive pills can cause a withdrawal bleed in 48 hours or a few days later so its almost certain that you are not pregnant. in my opinion you need not worry and you should just wait for your next period. relax.

Today s Feb 1st, I had intercourse Jan 7th, took a generic Plan B pill about 41-42 hours later after intercourse, I had some cramping after taking it and a little the next morning. After that I thought I was okay, then on Jan 23, I started spotting, thinking I began my period but it didn t get heavy as normal and only last for about 4 days but I wouldn t call that a period. Also, just one time within this past week there was a bright orange color on the tissue after wiping. Now I m two days late from my actual starting date and kinda worried. I cant go to the doctors because I don t have insurance. But just out of curiosity, what s the chances of pregancy? Is the Orange normal at all? Any iformation will help.

Hi. On the 23rd May the last day of my period my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex where he ejaculated inside me. The next day I took the morning after pill postinor. I was expecting my period last week. Now I understand that the morning after pill usually delays your menstruation cycle. But the month of June is almost over with 2 days remaining and I have got no signs of period. I am experiencing tenderness/sensitivity in my nipples of my breasts, on and off slight cramps, nausea on and off, fatigue. Could I be pregnant?? I took a pregnancy test Friday 26th June which came back negative. Could I be pregnant still??

Hi, I have been suffering from ear discharge from more than 10 years. i had been to few doctors but they only gave some anti fungal ear drops. I stopped going to them since i was quite busy and the ear problem was not painful. A smelly sticky pus comes out of my ear. I get an itching sensastion and generally i roll a piece of paper and make it like pipe and clean my ears. I gives a wonderful feeling, but the pus coming out is very sticky, and smelly. earlier it used to stop but now its regular.. i also feel my right ear is heavy, and sometimes it feels like there are fluids filled in my ears and they make a peculiar sound as if they are being vortexed or swirling inside. I was 12 years when i started having this problem, now i am a grown up 24 years old.i had a tonsil problem during my childhood days, and i was given homeopathic medicines. I had a problem of bad breath also. Doctors said that it was due to tonsils. Now i don t get tonsils pain but bad breath is till there.
