Took two doses of next choice continuously, no periods. Periods coming but irregular. Normal?

I took 2 doses of next choice within 4 weeks of each other, one at the end of November and one at the end of December. I did not get a period until January 17th and it was pretty normal, then my period in February came early and lasted for a week, now it is March and I am late for my period. Is it normal for this medicine to do this to you?

Hello dear,

Emergency contraceptive pills like next choice have a high hormonal content.
When taken, they cause hormonal imbalance in the body...which can explain the delay in your periods.

However, other than pregnancy, delay in periods can also be due to many other causes like hormonal imbalance(as already explained), anovulatory cycles, stress, any infection or pathology in the uterus, ovary, etc.

So, if pregnancy test is negative & periods are further delayed, kindly consult a Gynecologist & get a proper clinical examination done.

Investigations like complete blood count, Ultrasound scan of abdomen and pelvis will be helpful to rule out any pathological cause for your symptoms.

Wishing you a good health.
Take care.
