Dealing with the possibility of an unplanned pregnancy can be scary enough at the best of times, but we understand it could be even more worrying during a pandemic.
Don’t panic though, because essential health care services are still operating and will still be able to help you.
“If you think you may be pregnant during lockdown, you have options available to you, depending on whether you want to continue with the pregnancy or not,” says Julia, “during COVID-19, as much of this will be done remotely as possible to protect you.”
Worrying about a delayed period is rough, but there are many different reasons why it might not have come yet – many of which are not a cause for concern.
The length of your menstrual cycle can vary from month to month and things like stress and different sleeping patterns can also have an impact. As the morning after pill works by delaying ovulation, it makes sense that it may also push back your period by a couple of days.
Don’t jump to any conclusions and see if that pesky period arrives. Remember that you have options no matter what happens – it’s your body, your choice.
