Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

While there is no true "safe" time to have sex, having it a few days before your period is due is certainly one of the safest times.

P2 is a medication to help prevent pregnancy. It is taken in two doses so you overused it many times. Taking it more than twice is not going to help more. But you have ingested a very large dose of hormones which may now (and probably will affect your cycle for the next month. This could mean a delayed period which seems to be the case with you or irregular bleeding for the next month.

Taking P2 four days after sex makes it far less effective than taking it within 24 hours. Again your risk is very low due to the time of the month but you may want to check for pregnancy just in case. Give yourself another week to test if your bleeding does not start first.

P2 is supposed to be used for emergencies only so please make sure you always carry a condom so this doesn't happen again. The side effects of P@ can also be unpleasant.
