Brief Answer: NO CHANCE OF PREGNANCY. WAIT FEW MORE DAYS. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for writing to us. 1) Unprotected sex just before period due date is extremely SAFE and you have no chance of pregnancy in this case. In my opinion, you don't need to take extra I-pill. 2) As you took hormonal pills before period due date, then you have to wait few more days (3 to 5 days at least) to get withdrawal bleeding (similar to period). Hope, I have answered your query. Let me know, if you need further clarification. Wish your good health and practice safe sex in future. Regards, Dr Soumen For future query, you can directly approach me through WWW.WWWW.WW

Brief Answer: DON'T BE WORRIED. YOU DID SAFE SEX. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for follow up query. 1) Most women get their withdrawal bleeding within 3 to 5 days and in few cases 7 to 10 days. Late period occurs due to hormonal imbalance (by pills) and mental stress. So, you need to wait few more days to get withdrawal bleeding or period and maintain STRESS FREE healthy life style. Extra stress or depression can delay your period 1 to 2 weeks. 2) Pregnancy depends on proper timing of ovulation (occurs 14 days prior to due date) and unprotected sex with ejaculation inside vagina. After ovulation, ovum can live only 24 to 36 hrs and sperm can live 3 to 5 days. In this case, you did sex just before period due date (as per information) and there is NO chance of pregnancy if your previous cycle was quite regular. 3) As you did SAFE sex, then you don't need to take ADDITIONAL I-PILL for extra protection. It can cause 1 to 2 weeks late period if you took it UNNECESSARILY. However, I-pill is not helpful after 5 days. 4) If you don't get period after 5 to 7 days waiting, then you can consult with your Local Doctor or Gynecologist to induce period with hormonal medicine after some relevant tests. Pregnancy test is valid 2 weeks after last sex in the absence of period and not before that. However, you wouldn't be worried much. Hope, I have guided you properly. Kindly, close the discussion if you don't have any other query. Good luck and all the best. Regards, Dr Soumen

Brief Answer: DETAILS ARE GIVEN BELOW. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for query. First of all, you don't need to worry about pregnancy as you did safe sex. You will get your period soon as you stop taking those pill. Secondly, if pregnancy test becomes positive (in RARE case), medical abortion can be done with abortion pill after consultation with your doctor. Unwanted pregnancy can be terminated safely up to 7 weeks with pill. Hope for the best outcome. Practice safe sex in future. Regards, Dr Soumen
