Doctor :   Hi
User :   hi
Doctor :   Let me explain to you.
User :   ok
Doctor :   Emergency contraceptive pill contains hormones that are essentially the same hormones secreted during pregnancy.
Doctor :   In simple words, the hormones make the uterine walls unfavorable for implantation.
User :   k
Doctor :   There by it can either cause failure of the already implanted pregnancy or prevent a new implantation.
Doctor :   Thus there are chances of abortion which is as explained to you by doctor as 3%.
User :   k
Doctor :   Apart from this, there are no other unwanted effects expected.
Doctor :   These effects are more during the initial few days of pregnancy and do not expect them to happen after 3 months.
User :   will the baby be affected.. i went to drug information center.. still they say only
User :   though i thought of not ahving ababy now.. but i dont want to do D&C.. since i belive that baby is 100% perfect.. i'm mentally disturbed
Doctor :   The chances of abortion are higher than the effects on the child.
User :   ok.. i understood
Doctor :   So you the chance are either you may have an abortion or you can have a normal child.
Doctor :   The chances that you will have a child with fetal defects are much lesser compared to these 2 possibilites.
Doctor :   I suggest you to avoid all the measures to prevent abortion, such as good healthy diet,
Doctor :   proper rest.
Doctor :   Also consider getting an ultrasound scan during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.
User :   ok thank you so much !!! i understood clealry now.. sure i wont go for abotion..:)
