Hi XXXXXXX,
Thanks for posting your query.
Emergency pill has no long-term or serious side effects, and is safe to use for almost every woman.
No long-term studies to evaluate the carcinogenic potential of mifepristone(MT pills) have been performed. Results from studies conducted in vitro and in animals have revealed no genotoxic potential for mifepristone.
So if your periods are regular, you can plan your pregnancy without any stress & anxiety.
If there occurs regular period, have intercourse on 11, 13, 15, 17, 19th day of your cycle to get maximum result.
I hope your query has been answered. I will be available for your further queries.

Regards,
Dr.Monika

Thanks for the reply Doctor.

This gives a relief in mind.
I got my period yesterday Sept 16, 2012. My periods are regular but sometimes I have 27-day cycle and sometimes 28-day cycle.
So could you please suggest me -
• approx ovulation dates?
• And should I follow the same days for intercourse as you suggested earlier.
• Are there any myths to be followed as I see many articles like - missionary position is best, need have intercourse in morning or in evening etc...?

Lot of confusion; so any advises, please...

Thanks,
XXXXXXX.

Hi XXXXXXX,
Welcome back.
Your periods are regular & ovulation occurs 14 days before your due date means your due date is 13-14 October & ovulation will occur around 29-30th September.
Your intercourse days will remain same means on 11,13,15,17,19th day of your cycle.
Life span of ovum is of 24-48 hrs, so I have advised to have sex on alternate days.
You can have sex in any position & at any time, main thing is ejaculation should be inside the vagina.
Chances of getting pregnant in one cycle are 15-20% after having sex in fertile period. So if you do not conceive in one cycle, don't lose hope & try again.
I hope your query has been answered. I will be available to solve your further queries. In case you are satisfied with my answer, then please close the discussion by rating it.

Regards,
Dr.Monika choudhary
