Am I okay?

I had unprotected sex on day 10 of my cycle which was 14th April. I took p2 less than 12 hours later. I had no symptoms or side effects of p2. Just 3 days ago, my breasts started feeling sore just like they do before my periods. Today is day 25 of my cycle but I'm having blood from my vagina. I am yet to monitor its flow to know if it is implantation bleeding. My breasts have stopped feeling sore as of this morning too. My cycle is usually about 24-28 days. But never less than 23. So I think I have had my periods on time, if it is my periods. Please guide me. Is this a good sign? Am I pregnant? When can I do a test? It's been two weeks since I was intimate.

Thank you for clarifying. Because you took Postinor 2 as instructed, it is likey that it has done it's job of preventing pregnancy.

Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

Anytime you miss a birth control pill you increase your risk of pregnancy, but since your window of time was short, your risk is minimal. As long as you got right back on track with your schedule of taking it is best.

As for whether or not you are pregnant, you should take a home pregnancy test. You can get an early detection one if you are anxious to rule it out. Two weeks is plenty of time to get a good / accurate reading.

Be well,

Excuse me, I think you got me wrong. I was talking about emergency contraceptive postinor 2. Please reply in regards to this. I wasn't on regular birth control methods, that's why I took postinor.
