Thank you for your question.

Based on your explanation, we understand that you would like to know about birth control. We will try to help you out.

For your information, emergency contraceptive pills are taken up to 72 hours after having unprotected sex. On the other hand, 21 day birth control pills are a form of regular contraception. If you are not taking a regular birth control pill, you are advised to take an emergency contraceptive pill. After that, if you are sexually active, you are advised to switch to a regular birth control method as emergency contraception cannot be used regularly. As for pregnancy test, it is advisable to take it 10-14 days after missing your period. You can talk to our doctor online for further advice regarding this matter.

We hope that this answer has been helpful.
Thank you.
