On apr 4 I had intercourse then I took an ECP on apr 7. Then on pr 9 I had intercourse again. I may be pregnant? Its apr 15 now. Its supposed to be my due to have a menstruation because of the nordette. My doctor in ob-gyne said that I'm infertile on apr 4. But I'm just asking why I'm not bleeding today..how many days will I wait for my bleeding? Please help!!
Emergency contraceptives can mess up your cycle and delay your period. Emergency contraceptive taken on 4/7 would not have been effective for sex on 4/9. Emergency contrception is not birth control and it doesnt "cover you for a day or two" it doesnt work that way. Fertility can return quickly after using it. Using emergency contraceptives as soon as possible after unprotected sex is best. The longer you wait, the greater the failure rate. 3 days later is at the end of the time of efficacy. Your OB-GYN cannot predict a "fertile day". He/she can only make a guess. Women have to track for years to have any accuracy at predicting ovulation and even then it is iffy! If your period is late, you can do a pregnancy test. Emergency contraception is designed to delay ovulation for a few days, that is all it does, but this delay can also delay ones period as well. Try taking a pregnancy test, if negative then wait a week or two and take another if you havent bled yet. If this one is negative and still no period, consult your gynecologist.
