Period delayed for two weeks after escapelle

I am a woman in my 20s. I have taken escapelle on the third day after my previous cycle ended. One week after taking escapelle, i experienced withdrawal bleeding for four days. Now my period is delayed for 15 days from the expected period date. Three pregnancy tests are done after period delayed and all negative. Is period delays this long normal?

Hello, thank you for reaching out to us.

We understand the problem you are currently experiencing. Based on your statement, there are several reasons that can cause you to experience such problems, such as:

  • Side effect of the emergency contraception pill you have taken
  • Gynaecological problems
  • Obstetric problems

For your information, there are several side effects of emergency contraception. Among it are:

  • Breakthrough bleeding
  • Spotting
  • Changes in your menstrual cycle
  • Breast pain or tenderness
  • Headache
  • Abdominal pain or cramps

On top of that, it is advisable that the emergency contraception should not be used routinely as it contains high amount of hormone and this could disrupt your hormonal balance in your body. The emergency contraception greatly reduces the risk of accidental pregnancy if taken within 72 hours after sexual activity and the risk can be reduced even better when your partner is wearing a condom.

I hope the above statement does help you in a way and if you need further assistance and explanations from us, you can talk to our doctor or our specialist online. Thank you.
