Can I be pregnant and did what should I do

Patient: In November I had unprotected sex and took plan b a few hours later, a few days later I accidentally had unprotected sex and took plan b again. A week later I got my period for a few days ending November 16th but it was 2 weeks early. I havent gotten my period since should I be concerned

 

 

Symptoms: None

 

 

Doctor: Hi,Thanks for the query.I understand your concern.The bleeding you got in the middle of the month could be withd rawal bleeding due to emergency pill.As you got withdrawal bleeding after second episode of intercourse there is less possibility of pregnancy.Emergency pill can alter the menstrual cycle because of the high dose of hormones in it.You shouldn’t use emergency pills more frequently as it can affect hormonal levels and fertility in long run.There should be at least two months gap between two pills.Take care.
