Hi there,


This is Dr. D.J., experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.


I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Dr. D.J. :

Morning after pill can delay your period.

Dr. D.J. :

And this is likely the case with you.

Dr. D.J. :

However, there is still 1-2% chance of pregnancy even if you took the morning after pill.

Dr. D.J. :

To rule that out you can take a urine pregnancy test today.

Dr. D.J. :

If that is negative, you can expect your period anytime by next 1 week.

Dr. D.J. :

Best wishes,

Customer:
