Brief Answer: DETAILS ARE GIVEN BELOW. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for writing to us. Followings are my comments: 1) First, you should know that first 5 days after period over is extremely safe if your previous cycle was regular with 28 to 30 days duration. In such case, your chance of pregnancy is extremely rare and you DON'T need to take I-pill. 2) Second, if your previous cycle was irregular with shorter duration (within 21 to 25 days), then chance of pregnancy is there. In that case, you must TAKE I-pill to avoid unwanted pregnancy. Taking I-pill within 24 to 48 hrs gives more than 85% protection and around 58% within 48 to 72 hrs. Hope, above information is helpful to you for understanding. If you don't have any other query, you can close the discussion. Wish your good health and take care yourself. Regards, Dr Soumen For future query, you can directly approach me through WWW.WWWW.WW

Brief Answer: I-PILL HAS SOME TOLERABLE SIDE EFFECTS. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for follow up query. I-Pill has some side effects which are quite tolerable like nausea, vomiting, breast tenderness, abdominal cramp, mild spotting, headache etc. However, it varies from woman to woman. If you take I-pill (emergency contraceptive pill), you will get withdrawal bleeding (similar to period) within 5 to 7 days. However, next cycle may be delayed for 1 to 2 weeks due to hormonal imbalance and stress. You must undergo one home pregnancy test if your next period is delayed more than 1 week to clear doubts. Hope, it helps for you. Kindly, close the discussion if I have answered the question. Good luck. All the best. Regards, Dr Soumen

Brief Answer: MOST WOMEN GET WITHDRWAL BLEEDING. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for response. Most women get withdrawal bleeding within 5 to 7 days (max 10 days) following taking the I-pill. It is normal and physiological thing. Therefore, you can expect this bleeding. It is also seen that next cycle will be delayed for 1 to 2 weeks from due date due to hormonal imbalance. Last thing, I suggest that if you had previous REGULAR cycle, then you are quite safe and DON'T need to take I-PILL. Otherwise, you must take the Pill. Hope, I have guided you properly. Kindly, close the discussion. All the best. Regards, Dr Soumen
