If you have a period that in every way seems like a normal period, then you would not likely be pregnant. It seems that where pregnant women have a 'period' it is usually shorter and lighter.

Hi. Sex on 8th day of cycle, condom broke, no ejaculation. Had the ipill on the 9th day of cycle just to be safe. There was no bleeding in following weeks. Today is 26th day of cycle and my period is due today, but no period yet. I am seeing quarter inch (very little) lotion lile discharge. Need some advise on what to expect or do next.

1. Does prevent means delay or do you mean stop ovulation for that cycle?

2. If delayed, then is it correct to assime that period will get delayed?

3. If ovulation is stopped for that cycle, does this mean period will be missed untill the next period due next month?

4. Is it correct that sudden decrease in progesterone causes period?

5. If point 4 is true, then why is there no withdrawal bleeding in some cases untill the next period?

6. What is the scientific reason for delay or early period after ipill? Does it depend on pre or post ovulation pill consumption?

Hello, I had the ipill on 15th May, 9th day of my cycle (26 day cycle). There was no withdrawal bleeding. Period was due on 1st June but missed it. No period like symptoms either. Had very little lotion like discharge on 1st June and very little white discharge on 3rd June. Today is 16th June, yet no period (15 days late). Did home hcg urine preganancy tests on 3rd June, and again on 7th June but came negative.
1. Is this normal after ipill use?
2. How do I get my period back?

  1. EC aims to stop ovulation for that cycle.
  2. It depends what you mean by a period. EC stopping ovulation would probably lead to withdrawal bleeding at some time
  3. If ovulation is stopped for that cycle, there might well be a 'period' (or withdrawal bleeding), but the next cycle might be a different length.
  4. If the egg is not fertilized, estrogen and progesterone levels will drop, and the endometrium (lining of the uterus) will start breaking down.
  5. Synthetic hormones add to the natural hormones and they vary from person to person as well as throughout the natural cycle.
  6. See #5. It will vary and affects the hormone balance which regulates the cycle. It will have a different impact with pre- or post-ovulation pill consumption. Post-ovulation may not prevent the subsequent ovulation. The precise impact of different scenarios is still being debated

All you can do is wait. EC can disrupt the cycle.

  • Test on 7 June (over 21 days since last sex) should be reliable.
  • EC pill can disrupt the cycle.
  • Periods should resume when your system recovers from the EC pill.

When ipill is taken pre ovulation, then it surges the progesterone. How many days does the surge remain?

When the ipill is taken before ovulation and after period, then does it delay ovulation or is ovulation stopped for that cycle? Is there any guidance on this aspect?

Hi, when ipill is taken just before ovulation (when egg is matured but not yet released), and lets say that ipill stops ovulation. Then what happens to the unreleased matured egg?

An unreleased egg would die.

If today (18 June) Cycle Day 35, then your last period started 15th May, and you would have taken the i-pill on 23 May (CD9). You didn't state the day on which you had sex. If you took the home test after 21 days of sex, the result should be reliable.

  1. The period delay is probably because of taking the i-pill
  2. You next period could come at any time
  3. No, don't take any more pills.

Sex on 22nd May.

1. Do i need to go for a blood hcg test?
2. Was i ovulating when i took the ipill? That is CD 9?
3. Will there be a sudden onset of period anytime now? So should i keep wearing the pad or will i get sufficient time to wear one if i carry along in handbag?
4. Is it normal that period is delayed or completely missed if ipill taken on CD 9?

thank you are a gem to reply all

  1. I don't think you need a blood test, but you could if you so desired.
  2. Depends on what you mean by "ovulating"! CD9 would have been a 'fertile' time of a 26-day cycle. You would have been due to ovulate on 27 May (CD13=OD), so 22-27 May (CD8-13) would be considered fertile days. That is because sperm can live in a woman's body for up to six days. So sperm entering the vagina up to 5 days before Ovulation Day (OD) could be waiting for the released egg on OD. You only ovulate at a point in time If the i-pill worked, there would be no OD, therefore you would not have been "ovulating".
  3. It is difficult to say how your period will start. How does it normally start? How does it feel? Maybe a 'pantyliner' would be sufficient with a more substantial pad in your handbag.
  4. It is not unusual for a period to be delayed or missed.
