Don't worry abt card, you need advice at this time. Following taking these pills, it is not mandatory to have symptoms like pain/vomiting. If there is any vomiting within 1 hr of taking the pill, then repeat dose may be needed as drug may not work.

Is the date of 20th Sept correct or is it typo error? If it is really 20th Sept -- then you need to see gynecologist. If it is 20th Oct- you need to wait for your next period. If the period is missed, immediately see the doctor.

Dear Sakshi,

Unwanted 72 is an emergency contraceptve pill which works within 72 hour. After that it is not possible to prevent pregnancy by using any emergency contraceptive pill. You can use Cu-T insertion method within 5 days. Any way if you already taken that medicine no need of that. Failure rate of emergency ontraceptive is 0.1% only. And side effects also very less and may absent in most cases.(may be like your case)

Coming to your second question you need not to pay money in public forum. You have to pay in premium section, where you will get inswer very quickly, can follow up with 2/more question, aso can chat online with a doctor. You may also attach your scanned medical report in premium section.

In public forum you will get answer but there is no certain time limit.
