My gf & I had sex unprotected but took pills within 72 hrs but after 5 days of taking pills irregular periods have started much before the due date. Is there any unwanted pregnancy or its a effect of pills because of which some hormonal imbalance has taken. Please suggest

Hi...,the most common cause for missing periods is pregnancy unless ruled out... In a normal menstrual cycle, a balance between the hormones estrogen and progesterone regulates the buildup of the lining of the uterus (endometrium), which is shed during menstruation. If a hormone imbalance occurs, mentrual irregularities occurs.. Periods can be delayed for a single cycle or it can be delayed in every cycle. If the delay is in only a single cycle, the most likely cause is a temporary cause like stress.
