Thanks Maryann.

Should I calculate my next period from last month period or "bleeding" date?

Hi Anonymous,

Calculate based on the last day of the "bleeding" date.

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for your question.

If your girlfriend does not have any vaginal bleeding within three weeks of taking Postinor, then she should take a pregnancy test.

Some women notice changes in their menstrual cycles as a side effect of the pill. Next month's period could start on time or start earlier or later than expected.

Regards,

Hi the first day of my period last month was on 23 Feb and ended on 27 Feb. I had intercourse with husband on the day when my period ended. I took postinor 2 pills within 12 hours and experienced bleeding about 7 days later. When should I expect my period for this month?

your periods might come early or be delayed, you might have them during early April

Hi Anonymous,

Your next period could start at the expected time, or come earlier or later than expected. Some women experience changes in their menstrual cycles as a side effect. Generally, the next period start date is not off by more than five days.

Hello Anonymous,

Have you had any vaginal bleeding since taking Postinor 2? If it has been three weeks since you took the pill and you have not had any bleeding, please take a home pregnancy test.

If you had bleeding after taking the pill, then your period could be late as a side effect of the pill. This does happen to some women.

Regards,
Maryann
