Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

There are very very less chances of you being pregnant.Having sex with condom on can prevent ejaculation into vagina and so prevents pregnancy.Taking an ipill within 72 hours stands as an effective method of contraception.The efficiency is more in the first 24 hours than 48 hours than 72 hours. So there are no chances that you could be pregnant.

When you take an emergency pill like ipill , there are possibilities of having menstrual irregularities like delaying and also intermittent bleeding.The delay in your periods is due to ipill.If you would like confirm , please wait for a week and if you still dont get your periods , get a home pregnancy test done.

Take care.

Thank you doctors for such a thunder-light response!!!! But as i mentioned, I am having nipple pain, lower back pain and even stomach pain and I am having vaginal discharge too... so all these symptoms are similar to pregnancy symptoms... SO I am very frightened. Please dont mind and answer this qn too... I would be very very grateful.
Thanks in advance

Hey Doc, i have not got my menses from past two months nor I am pregnant. I have taken i pills 3-4 times after intercourse as a preventive measure not to pregnant. is there any side effects of those pills? because i have noticed that after intake of the pills my periods became irregular instead it was regular beforehand. Please advise why is it so that i have not got my periods for last two months. Can I be suffering from ovarian cyst? I am 27 years old and am looking forward to conceive in 3-4 years from now.

i am 22years old i took an ipill on 11th june and then one on 12th june following physical session with my boyfriend but he didnt really have sex he rubbed it on the entrance but didnt go all the way in. i had my period on 13th june which lasted for more than a week and was heavy. Also my last period was on 16th may so that means this one was somewhere right on time! but its 19th july now and i havent got my period yet m just worried and i want to know why is there a delay ? can it be because of taking two ipills within 24hrs? or can just rubbing and touching can cause pregnancy ? i am not dizzy nor nauseatic but i am worried why has there been a delay of over 10days when the last period one was on time ?

Hi, I took the pill for years and decided to stop 4 months ago as I had no sex drive. I also started to take Fluoxetine 3 or months ago. When I stopped the pill I got my period normally after a week... then again after a month and again after that. However, I'm 1 week late now. I have the symptoms but no sign of period. I have been married for years and I'm not trying to get pregnant (quite the opposite).We had protected sex close to my ovulation date and never noice a problem with the condom. Should I test for pregnancy or is this normal?
