Answer
It is not a good idea to panic and take these medications when you don't know if you really need to. The hormones could be affecting you. I cannot tell you. You would need to go to a doctor and/or get a pregnancy test. To get a free pregnancy test, you can go to a local pregnancy resource center. You can find one at http://www.optionline.org or http://www.heartbeatservices.org and click on the worldwide directory. Let me know how you are doing and if you got your period. You can email me at DWooley97@aol.com
