User :   Hello Doc,
I am 32 years old with no health problems. Last month my periods started on the 15th or the 16th (April). Usually I get my next period after 26 to 27 days. I had unprotected sex recently. Actually on 5th (May), my partner inserted, but didnt ejaculate inside. On 7th night we had unprotected sex and on 8th morning I took an iPill. I was worried and so took another iPill on 9th evening. Are there any chances that I would have got pregnant? Today is the 10th and as per the calculation I might get my around this time and havent got it yet. Need your opinion please.
