Well, I am sorry if this question sounds repetitive. But I just wanted to ensure this. I had an intercourse on 20th december and took an i-pill within 24 hours. On the 7th day there was a bleeding and it continued for 3-4 days. So, my question is will this be considered as periods?

Also, today condom broke, but there was no ejaculation. And also today only I have started regestrone ( for 5 days, two tablets each day) for getting periods, so will it help and reduce the chances of pregnancy?

I am pretty scared :-(

HI oliveoil123,

One of the side effects of taking an emergency contraceptive like the I-pill is variation in when a person bleeds. It doesn't happen for everyone, but many people find that for a couple of months after taking the pill their periods come earlier, or later, than usual, and sometimes seem different (for example, last longer or don't last as long as usual).

Did the Regestone come with a paper with information about it? If so, does it tell you if it is a contraceptive?

so if the bleeding happened after taking an ipill, does that mean there is no pregnancy scare?

And regestrone was suggested by a gynaec for getting periods, if late and it is mildly contracetive in nature

Are you able to access pregnancy tests? That's really the only definitive way to know if one is pregnant or not.

A bleed such as you describe is generally a very good sign that one is not pregnant, yes.

What you're describing is the withdrawal method. You can read more about it here, including it's rate of effectiveness.

Withdrawal

So, you used two methods of birth control: withdrawal and emergency contraception.
