Gynecology

Two weeks early with cycle

05/04/2009

Question:

Morning, I was wondering, I had my period the 12 April ( started ) then on the 17th of April I had intercourse and the condom broke, and on the 19th of April used a morning after pill. I am on no birth control pills, I started to have my period again now on the 25th of April and was just a little confused on why this is happening? Could you please tell me this is normal?

Answer:

Emergency contraception can sometimes cause disruption of the normal cycle. You should perform a home pregnancy test. If it is negative, you should repeat it again in two weeks. If you have any concerns regarding sexually transmitted infections, you should see your health care provider.
