For the first time, I had nordette an ECP. 7 days after correctly taking it, I had withdrawal bleeding. I heard you should count your normal cycle since day 1 of your withdrawal bleeding, so I did. Right now, I am delayed on that period. But I have had 2 PTs and both turned out negative. I haven't had other symptoms but I am worried.

I haven't been active since taking the ECP. Does the withdrawal bleeding indicate I'm safe? If so, is there still a chance I'm preggers?

Btw, we did the deed 4 days before the Ovulation day. Does this help?

Hi Rl,

Just to clarify, you said you took two pregnancy tests and that they came out positive. Did you mean to say they came of negative (i.e they said you are not pregnant)?

Just to let you know, many people who take EC experience changes to their menstrual cycle, so that is likely why your period is delayed.

I apologize I meant negative [Smile]

But should I be worried? Or is the withdrawal bleeding a sign that I'm safe from pregnancy? Given that I haven't been active since taking the ECP

Hi RL!

Like Sam already said, it's pretty common to experience changes on the menstrual cycle after taking EC.

Can I ask when did you take these pregnancy tests? Meaning how soon after the sexual activity did you test?

Pregnancy test can be taken after 15 days after the sexual activity, so, if you have taken those in that lapse of time, then you can trust the results. [Smile]
