Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER.

Postinor 2 can cause changes in the menstrual cycle. The next period could start earlier or later than expected, but usually not by more than five days.

In your case, taking the pill within three days of finishing your period may have caused a hormonal imbalance.

Instead of repeating the home pregnancy test, call your gynecologist.

Hi,did went to the gyn, she just sent me to take a nother pregnancy test this was on the 24 of Aug. She then went ahead ,and said if it is negative I should wait a next two weeks again, and take it if my menstrual as not started. I thought going there would have at least ease my distress,and give me some knowledge as to wat is going on but it didn't sadly.
