User :   i hand unprotected sex and gave her an ipill.. her periods are delayed.. is she pregant??
Doctor :   Hi
User :   hi
Doctor :   May I know after how many days following the intercourse did your partner use the I pill?
User :   we had unprotected sex just a day before her periods were due i.e. 27th march.. after which i gave her an emergency contraceptive ipill.. though i was sure that i didn't ejaculated inside but to be on the safe side.. now her periods had not yet come till today
User :   we had in the morning then gave her the pill in same evening..
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   With the details you have mentioned, there are very, very less chance that your partner could be pregnant now.
Doctor :   I would say the chance is almost zero.
Doctor :   the current delay in the period may probably be due to I pill
Doctor :   or any other factors such as stress or any other factor.
User :   well.. that i have explained... but she is crying alot and not listening to me...
Doctor :   If she is worried of being pregnant, the best way to deal this is by getting tested.
User :   there is one more thing... that i came to know today itself.. that she is suffering from PCOS and is on hoeopathic medication..
Doctor :   You can ask her to get the urine pregnancy test done.
Doctor :   This is a simple test through which one can confirm pregnancy.
User :   with that pregnancy strips??? will they be accurate at this time..
Doctor :   they pregnancy strips are effective, though they are not that accurate as compared to the blood HCG tests or an ultrasound scans,
Doctor :   but accuracy is at more than 85%.
Doctor :   For best accuracy,
User :   i dnt want to take any chances... is there any measure that u can suggest to avoid pregnancy???
Doctor :   you need to consider the tests after 2 -4 weeks following intercourse.
Doctor :   There are pills that can be used for abortion, if pregnancy is confirmed.
Doctor :   They can safely be used within the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.
User :   what are their side effects on a polycystic ovary??
Doctor :   Since these are hormone pills inappropriate use can cause further disturbances in her periods.
Doctor :   Hence my suggestion is that you use the abortion pills only after confirmation of pregnancy, that is only if needed.
User :   prolonged periods kind of troubles??
User :   but you are suggesting that chances of geting pregnant is almost zero
Doctor :   PCO's is a condition in which there is no regular ovulation that leads to disturbances in her periods.
Doctor :   Yes,
Doctor :   Since you have used the I pill appropriately, the chances that she could be pregnant is almost zero.
Doctor :   The present delay could either be because of the stress or her previous PCOS problem.
Doctor :   Hence I suggest you to wait for another 2 weeks.
Doctor :   If she doesn't get her periods in the mean time,
Doctor :   you may consider the pregnancy test then,
Doctor :   If they turn positive, only then consider using abortion pills.
Doctor :   Hope I am clear to you.
User :   okay...
