Thanks for writing in.
If P2 contraceptive contains 1.5 mg of levonorgestrel , then it is extremely unlikely that you will get pregnant. Please remember that this is not a regular method of contraception as it can cause irregular bleeding. Also, you should be using adequate protection like condoms to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted diseases.
Hope this helps

Welcome to HCM.

If your periods are of 30 to 32 days, 21 will be a safe period the chances of you being pregnant is very slim.

As you have taken the contraceptives, chances of pregnancy further decreases. I advice you to wait till your expected date of menstruation and if it delays by a week you should do a urine pregnancy test using the kit which is available in most of the drug store. Preferably use early morning sample of urine.

I advice you not to perform the test now only as the chances of false negative result is high.

Hope I have provided the information you needed.
Wish you good health. Take care.
