1 Pregnancy which is a result of i pill does not cause any major adverse effects.

At the most it results in an ectopic pregnancy in which case it is better to abort..

This can be confirmed by the scan alone.

Doctor :   Has your wife taken an immunoglobin injection that is given during delivery of your first child?
User :   because of Negative Rh she had injection three time during last baby
Doctor :   Yes then the complication because of the RH negativity will be reduced in this pregnancy...
Doctor :  
So the chances of complications are nil..
Doctor :  
I would suggest you to get a scan on the 4 th week
Doctor :  
If the scan is showing good results and no signs of ectopic pregnancy you can continue with the delivery.
Doctor :  
Have you followed?
User :   we had ultra sound on 09.12.09, 7week & 4days till date
Doctor :   Were the reports normal?

User :   yes on first cut as told by Doctor
Doctor :   Then you can continue with the pregnancy..

User :   what is the mean of ectopic pregnancy
Doctor :  
Complications because of the two problems you had mentioned are nil.
Doctor :  
Ectopic pregnancy means the fetus gets attached to other part of the uterus instead of its normal site.
Doctor :  
Usually it has to be attached in the fundus or the body of uterus.
Doctor :  
They maily happen becuase of contraception.
Doctor :  
The chances of this happening is also rare with an i pill.
User :   as per doctor it is on it place
Doctor :  
Then its normal.
User :   what harm I-pill can maximum done
Doctor :   I had mentioned it, the only known complications that is caused is only an ectopic pregnancy and nothing else.

Doctor :   If you are planning fpr an abortion you can get it done during this time.
User :   Normal or operational
Doctor :  
It can be done by both ways.

The earlier you do the chances of surgical is less.
