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??

Hello Doctor!
My 13 year old daughter is facing a problem of bed wetting for last 4 years. It relapsed around 2007, after a reasonable gap, since she stopped it around the age of 6-7 years. Although a bit late that time also, and with homeopathic medication. Normally she is awake immediately when bed-wetting starts at night but can not completely control. She has been prescribed tryptomer 25 and taking it for last 6 months. But of no reasonable effect. Kindly advise. Also please advise whether I should still continue her on tryptomer?
