Unwanted 72 and delay of menses

Question (Posted on :  09 Mar 2010 )


i had unwanted 72 before last month i.e. December 2009 last. Next month my period came bit early then usual. Then last month did not took Unwanted 72 but this time around my MC is delayed by already 4 days. Kindly suggest is it due to side effect of Unwanted 72.

Yes. Unwanted 72 is an emergency contraceptive and it can delay or advance your next menses to some days. It is not a good to use Unwanted 72 regularly every other month as it can have side effects. Consider OC pills or other form of regular contraception.
