Delayed periods. Had unprotected intercourse. Took Nordette. Got withdrawal bleeding. No pregnancy test done. Am I pregnant?

I had unprotected intercourse with my boyfriend on May 18, '13 (May 10 - start of my period) which is may last day of regular menstruation. No ejaculation happened inside me and my bf confirmed that. I'm getting paranoid cause I'm not yet ready to get pregnant so i researched some contraceptives and Nordette is the only available here in our country. So I took nordette 21(4 pills) and another 4 pills after 12 hrs, within 72 hrs after our intercourse. After 4-5 days (May 24), I got a withdrawal bleeding which happened for 4 days. I haven't got my period yet (June 9 or 10, '13) and I'm two weeks delay now. I haven't take a PT yet. Is there a chance that I'm pregnant? How long does Nordette can delay a period? Please reply to my question 'coz it will really help me to stay calm and not to worry. Thank you.

Hello,

Following taking contraceptive pill, period may be delayed for 1-2 weeks usually. Here, you need to undergo one blood test for beta-hCG to exclude pregnancy. It is more reliable test than home pregnancy test.

Other reasons are hormonal imbalance, mental stress, over wt, irregular diet habit, pelvic infection etc. You need to consult with gynecologist to get examined once. You may require progesterone pill to induce period in absence of pregnancy.

Take healthy diet, keep bowel habit regular, avoid stress, drink more water, maintain genital hygiene. Practice safe sex in future. Good luck.

I had unprotected sex on june 9th. and again on june 12th with the same guy. We are both clear of std's, but I have been pregnant before with twins and miscarried. When I was supposed to get my period (june 19th) there was some spotting and some pink discharge, as well as some burning during urination. I have had a horrible migraine for 3 days now, and I was nauseous all day today when I was trying to bake, but I also just had surgery on my jaw, and thought that could be the trigger of my nauseousness. Do you think I am pregnant?
