Hi dear
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

There are very low chances that you could be pregnant.As you have taken morning after pill , the pill itself can cause a delay in your periods.So i advise you to wait till you get your periods.

Take care.

Had unprotected sex and then I took the morning pill (the 2 dose type) the first pill within 24 hour and the second one exactly 12 hour after the first pill. But odourless white discharge is coming out instead of period. Period symptoms are showing but still my period havent come yet.Its already been three days from my expected period date. Is this some side effect of the pill? Is it normal? Am I pregnant? Im worry now.

I am now 15 days late for my period and have suffered a sickness felling ( could be worrying im pregnant the sickness feeling ) I have took 3 pregnancy tests and all have came back negative . Can the morning after pill make you miss a period or be late for this long ? Thanks

I had unprotected sex at 2 am Friday and I then took the first morning after pill at 12 pm the same day. I was late on my second pill and ended up taking it at 11 am Saturday, so I was 23 hours late for the second pill from the first. Now should this be okay being this late for the second pill? Should I take a third pill? Or is the effectiveness of the pill still fine?

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?
