  1. hi,

    very honestly after expiry date the potency that is effectivity of that drug decreases..

    so can't promise full potential..

    secondly if you have had intercourse during the middle 8-10 days of your cycle then the chances of pregnancy increases..

    would suggest if you want full protection from pregnancy use an oral contraceptives pill on a daily basis..
    as for now just wait for it periods...if you don't get periods beyond 42 days den do a urine pregnancy test n den we can go ahead with the results
    Thanks
