  • Withdrawal bleed following Unwanted 72 (emergency contraceptive pill), which occurs in 7 to 10 days post emergency pill intake. Still, you can wait for another 2 to 3 days. If still problem persist you have to take her to the doctor for necessary advise.

    always confident

  • Unwanted 72 has been given within/around 24 hours after the unprotected intercourse as per your post. It usually takes anywhere from 5 to 14 days to have the next cycle. If the tablet is given in time, then the success chance is around 95%. I would suggest wait for another couple of days. If it is very important that pregnancy has to be avoided at any cost, then consult a nearby gynecologist. If the cycle does not start around the expected date then they would advise a blood test or a urine pregnancy test. Some people take an extra dose without thinking of the effects. Please do not do anything without professional guidance now.

    People often mistake tablets like Unwanted 72 as an alternative to regular contraception. There are many methods ( barriers,hormonal) that if followed regular offer a good protection. Regular hormonal tablets would not be suitable for all.Please remember tablets like unwanted 72 are the last option after the act of unprotected sex and not the first.
    So please discuss this with your regular gynecologist and do not just take this as an over the counter medication.

  • Young people take advantage of the contraceptives and other tablets to avoid pregnancy. In your case, you offered your fiancé unwanted 72 to clear the menstruation but still this cycle has not appeared. Any product appearing in the market is throughly tested by the laboratory for its effectiveness and finally it reaches to the end customers. Time of action varries from patient to patient and s such it may take a couple of days to get the positive result. So, you are advised to wait a week before you take any step in this regard.
    In case, you fail to get any result, you need to approach a gynaecologist for the further remedial steps. Termination of pregnancy may be the last resort for your fiancé in case she is unmarried. The doctor may advise some other tests to ascertain the chances of pregnancy. In that case, the advice of the Doctor is to be followed.
    There are other alternative ways of avoidance of pregnancy such as usage of condoms, pills to be taken regularly by the ladies apart from female - condom. Such contraceptions need to be used in future cases.

  • Unwanted 72 is an emergency contraceptive. It helps in preventing pregnancy if taken within 72 hours of an unprotected intercourse or failure of the usual contraceptive.
    As this is a matter of utmost importance even if she has taken the pill in time, it will be prudent to visit a doctor for suitable advice.
    One should not be careless in these matters.
