Delayed period
My wife's periods are delayed. She used to have regular period (30-31 days cycle) but last time we went unprotected in safe period time (3-4 days before expected date). Now periods are already delayed 3-4 days (expected period date 7-8 Dec). We don't want any baby right now. Is there anything to worry? She had contraceptive pill on 15 Nov to avoid any risk of pregnancy due to spillage of my fluid outside her part from condom. Is this delay is due to the pill? Please help me in the matter.

Hello, Do a urine pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy. If the result is negative, she is unlikely to be pregnant so visit a gynecologist to rule out other causes of delayed periods. If the result is positive then she is likely to be pregnant so consult a gynecologist for further management and evaluation.

Get the urine pregnancy test checked. Ipill gives a high dose of the progesterone hormone to the body and alters the cycle regularity. Hence the period can also be delayed by that.
Next Steps
Do the urine pregnancy test and inform me the report.
Health Tips
In case pregnancy test is negative, wait for the normal periods to resume. Don't take any further treatment.

Hi, you can wait till 14-15th day of your unprotected relationship. Even by that time you do not get period, go for urine pregnancy test and act as per result. Chances of pregnancy test to be positieve are only there in case of your cycle irregularity which may occur occasionally.
