My last period was aug 23 Had unprotected sex on


Q: My last period was aug 23
Had unprotected sex on sept 3 and sept 24 took plan b both times
I havent got period yet i shouldve gotten it on sept 20


A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query to ATD for an opinion,

Ideally after taking plan b on 3rd September post sex, you should be getting your withdrawal bleed within next 7-10 days, i.e by 10th-13th September.
If you did not get the bleeding then there are chances that you could have been pregnant. Again after taking plan b on 24th and yet not getting a withdrawal bleed calls for an urgent serum beta hcg test to rule out pregnancy conclusively. If the hcg levels are more than 3mIU then you are pregnant for sure, else you may wait for another week for your menses to return naturally.

Further course of oping for a withdrawal bleed with progesterone's can be contemplated if menses still do not return after a week in case of absence of pregnancy.

So please get a serum beta hcg test done.
I hope i have answered your query in detail,
Wishing you safe sexual practices,
