OK well my girlfriend and I had sex about 3 weeks ago and the condom broke. Within 12 hour she took the morning after pill and about a week later she said she told me she was on her period. She took a test and it came up negative. About 1 week later i broke up with her and know she is saying she s throwing up all the time and that she lied about her having her period and she said she lied about taking the pregnancy test correctly she said she dipped the test in the toilet water. I need help. Is what she saying possible and is it a possiblity shes not. She also wont take another test. Can you help me? This situation is cause a lot of stress on me and i need a doctors advise.

Hello dear doctor I have 2 questions that I need urgent answers to them, could you please guide me on them? I have had unprotected sex recently with my boyfriend and then on 5th of January I took Postinor2 after less than 24 hours of the intercourse (and took another one exactly after 12 hours), then again I had another unprotected sex on 9th of January and again I took Postinor 2 (less than 48 hours of my intercourse) and unfortunately I had the third time unprotected sex with my boyfriend on 12th of January and took another Postinor 2 (less than 24 hours of my intercourse) and I have not had any other sexual relationship with him until now but then on 15th of January I saw some blood spots (low blood flow) until 19th of January (around 5 days), 1) Doctor, could you please tell me if now I am pregnant or not? 2) and if I am pregnant, is there any possibility of having any abnormalities in my baby because of taking Postinor 2 three times in a row or in the future it will cause any problems for me or my future pregnancies or babies? I sincerely appreciate your kind help, Thank you so much Marni
