Hey, guys... I'm always checking this site and a while ago i left a message on a board.
The thing is, i had an unprotected intercourse where my bf didn't came. Ok.
Scared anyway that things could go wrong, i took the emergency pill.
One week later my period come, it lasted around 6 days. Ok, it was a period.
In the week i was having my period, one week and a half past i had unprotected intercourse and took the emergency pill (i took it around 12hours later the act) i made an blood hcg test that came out to be negative. (Yaaay \^^/)

Period ending i started taking regular contraceptive pills, i know i should have taken in the first day os period, but as things goes i only started taking after my period ended... and my cycle ended last sunday.
I was still scared i could be pregnant, so i took an home test, peed on the stick and negative again... it was abou two weeks and a half or more after the relation.

I'm scared now, cause i ended my cycle (my 21 pills) on sunday... and shouldn't i be bleeding already?
CoulD i be pregnant?

After that i started taking the pills and only had sex with condoms.

Please help, im scared [Frown] i can't be pregnant [Frown]

Am I hearing right that in the last few weeks or months, you have taken EC twice, and then also started the birth control pill?

If so, you can figure that it is most likely that for a few cycles, things may be pretty unpredictable, just because those are a lot of different hormonal messages, basically, to be sending your body in a short time, so it is common for the body to basically be all WTF? for a bit that given.

So, given that you've had one period plus a negative pregnancy test (assuming you took the test correctly), those are both signs that you are not pregnant.

One side effect of emergency contraception is that it can change your cycle in unexpected ways, and starting BC pills may also cause some changes.

Just to clarify: after the unprotected incident is when you started the pill and using condoms?

Also, are you and your partner up to date on your STI testing?

No, it was like

Unprotected relation -> emergency pill 12hours later -> one week later period -> while i was having my period i made an blood hcg test(negative) -> period ending i started taking birth control pills -> then i bought a home test(negative) -> keep taking the pills till now, when i stopped [on sunday] for the seven days stop

And yes, after the incident i started using condoms.
He made sti test a while ago and i came out i clean, and i lost my virginity with him.

I'm still scared. :/ i know its kibda stupid but i was expecting my period so i could be like 100% "im okay"

Ah, OK, thank you for clarifying.
As we said, the combo of EC plus starting hormonal birth control has the potential to throw your cycle through the loop. But, again, that negative pregnancy test, plus a period, is a strong sign that you are not pregnant.

Do you think it is necessary to have a third test? I trust the blood test but given the fact i made it one week and a half after the incident makes me insecure... and i get a lil insecure about the home test, i bought one that could be any pee of the day and the accuracy is of 99,6%, wich came negative too.
I made the blood test 1week and a half later the incident
And the home test 3weeks and a half.

Thank you for your patience! Thank you very much.

By all means, two times of using EC plus starting BCPs in such a short time is something pretty much bound to mess up your cycles for a bit. That is a lot of hormones to take in a very short time.

I would figure your cycles will probably be off and unpredictable for the next couple of months, and just kind of prepare yourself for that.

If you think that a third test would help you feel less stressed, then by all means that is something you should do. You may find this article comes in handy:

Even just taking it once, plus the BC pills, is enough to cause an unpredictable cycle.

Thank you so much for your time and patience.

So i can assume that i'm not pregnant given the facts i wrote here, right?
If my period doesn't show up this cycle it's because i took a large dose of hormones?

Just to be sure!

Thank you again!

You're quite welcome, and that is correct.

I would say the hormones are the most likely reason why your cycle is off, but I can't be 100% certain of it because there are many factors that can cause a late or missing period. You may want to give this article a read, just for future reference:

Hey, so.. me again...
When i posted it, after i posted this thread...
I started liberating some fluid... it's not like a fluid but i dont know if i can call it a discharge either...
It's like a very very (that it even get to the panties) light secretion, that came a liiittle brownish at first, then with a liiitle thin light blood once yesterday and once today.
I was expecting my menstruation as usual -cause it seemed the start of it- but it still didn't show up... so... is it apparently okay?

You're asking for something we can't possibly know about your body.

If you are still asking if you are pregnant or not, our answer remains the same: we can't tell you that. Only a healthcare provider who can see you in person or a pregnancy test can.

But if the tests came back negative, then i'm not pregnant. OK.

I wanna know if this fluids could be normal, instead of a menstruation, given the fact that i took a EC and then started the BCPs?

Sounds like you are spotting, which is a normal side-effect both of taking EC and of starting hormonal birth control.
