Hi,

Welcome to XXXXXXX

As your menstrual period was over only on 25.06.2012, chances of pregnancy due to sex on 26th and 27th XXXXXXX 2012 are negligible.

You should start T. Femilon from first day of menstrual period.

Though you have not taken tablet on 26th, should take remaining tablets regularly.

If you have further query, please feel free to ask.

Hi,

Welcome again,

During a regular menstrual cycle of 28 days, first 7 days are generally infertile (Calender method of contraception).

Thus if your period started on 22nd of XXXXXXX and continued up to 24th, your infertile period will be from 22/06/2012 to 28/06/2012.

Chances of pregnancy due to intercourse during this period are generally negligible.

In addition to above fact, you are taking T.Femilone oral contraceptive also.

Though it was missed on 26th, chances of getting pregnant are rare.

Thus in my opinion I-pill is not required.

You should take remaining dose of T.Femilone regularly.

If you have further query, please feel free to ask.
