Please certainly check for pregnancy with urine strip test though there is possibilty that you get menstruation bit delayed even after noethisteron is stopped.  The i-pill or any other morning-after pill should not be misused as an excuse to practise unsafe sex. The manufacturers clearly state that a woman shouldn’t pop in these pills more than once in a menstrual cycle - however, it would be totally naive to think they can be taken so regularly. Taking more than one will play havoc with your cycle, make your periods unpredictable, with spotting becoming constant. The i-pill should be taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex but it’s most effective the sooner you take it. It is most effective if taken within 12 hours of unsafe sex, and the efficacy drops thereafter. And the worst part is it has 10 % failure rates. Thnx for asking.

Ibs is totally curable by ayurvedic treatment. Due to improper timing of diet and poor diet intake. Intestine metabolism becomes week. Which results in ibs. Ayurvedic panchakarma detoxification, kalpas like aampachak churns, nripativallabha rasa, chitrakadi vati. Bramhi churns shows good result in controlling psychosomatic effect, thin consistency of motion, bloating, but have to consult nearby ayu doctor for systemic examination and treatment.

Hey. The simple way to avoid gas problem is to maintain a healthy life style. Try to follow this. Avoid eating outside food and oily or spicy foods. Drink plenty of water at least 2-3 liters of water per day. Have adequate sleep of 7-8 hours per day. Do moderate physical exercise daily as walking, running, jogging, cycling. Do yoga or meditation to keep yourself relaxed and calm. Avoid stress. If you are over weight, try to loose weight as losing weight can help relieve your symptoms. Avoid smoking and drinking alcohol. Hope this helps.) take care.
