Can I be pregnant? Too soon for a test?

My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex on the 16th August. I took the first pill of Postinor 2 on the 17th but due to unplanned circmstances the second pill was never taken. On the 26th I started feeling nauseous, very sleepy, an increased sense of smell, rise in body temperature, dizziness, sore boobs and had cramps different from what I feel before I get my periods. On the 31st (yesterday) I started bleeding slighty and it continued on the 1st September (today) but it decreased a lot compared to yesterday's flow. My regular cycle is 24 days. My expected period should have been on the 4th September. I had originally planned to take a test tomorrow when I started getting those symptoms because I never experienced them before with my PMS symptoms. However, I do not know if there will be bleeding tomorrow to take the test. Should I wait a few days after the bleeding to take the test or can I take it tomorrow? I would like to have a baby. Any advice or similar experiences will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance : )

I had slight bleeding 2 weeks after I took the half dose of Postinor 2. However, it last 2 & a 1/2 days. It was red but light... I used a panty liner but the blood did not fill the liner. It's been more than a week after the bleeding and I am still bloated, nauseous every morning, breats slightly sore but feel heavy, and I have a lot of fatigue. Should I take a test now? Advice would be appreciated.

Hi Kelly

I think it's a good idea to take a test, at least to rule out pregnancy. If you are not pregnant, you may have a bad case of PMS or this could be stress-related.

Good luck!

Hi KellySookram12!

Thanks for your post!

If you want to get pregnant, don't take emergency contraception, it's quite reliable.

It sounds like your period is on it's way and on time. Wait a few days to see if it does come on properly and if not, take a test.

Good luck!
