ANSWER: Hi Yamini, Sometimes taking an abortion pill with extra hormones will affect your natural cycle. Have you taken any other pills since then? Have you taken a pregnancy test again? Please let me know. You can also email me privately at CHERYL51@aol.com so we can talk more. Hope to hear from you soon.

Dear Yamini, Thanks for your followup question. It's possible that you could be pregnant but I would think that you would start having some kind of pregnancy symptoms. Your period could be abnormal because you are taking progesterone tablets and that you took the emergency pills. I can't really tell you but can you tell your doctor the whole truth? That would help the doctor make an accurate diagnosis. Let me know how you are doing. Email me at CHERYL51@aol.com
