Doctor :   hello
User :   Hello
Doctor :   tell me your query
User :   My wife has a 28 day cycle and her 1st day of period was on 4th Dec 10. We have unprotect sex today i.e. on 7th day of period. But I have not discharge my semen inside her vagina and takeout before climax. However for precaution she has taken a normal oral contraceptive pill (Levonogestrai. 0.15 mg, Ethinyloestradiol 0.03 mg). Please write me is there any chance of pregnancy. We do sex quite occasionally and she is also afraid of side effects ipill etc.
User :   Please suggest whether she need to continue the normal contraceptive pill every day now. We are living in separate cities and have no plane for sex for next 15 days.
Doctor :   may i know your wife age please ?
