User :   hello
Doctor :   hi
User :   Can you help me? I've had endometriosis since 2005. I had surgery in 2006 and was put on Lupron and many other bc pills which didnt work so I stopped them. The endo came back and I had another surgery in June where the doc put me on 4 decapeptyl shots. First starting June 8. The shots ended 2nd week sept. I had sex with my boyfriend and the condom came off but he had come in the condom and I took it out. We still got really worried, is there any way I could be pregnant? The doctor said I would probably have to get invitro whenever I want to get pregnant because the endo is so severe. My question is, is it safe for me to take an ECP, the morning after pill by now? And what side effects will it have? Please reply soon. Thanks.
