Hello there.

Thanks for writing.

Yes, pregnancy can be a possibility.

You had intercourse during her fertile period so pregnancy can happen if the intercourse was unprotected.

If she has already missed her period, then you need to go for a urine test for pregnancy.
More important if she has regular monthly cycles and if its been 7 days past her expected date of menses.

The urine test comes positive as early as the first day of missed period.

I hope I have answered your query.

Take care.

Hello there.

Thanks for writing back.

Yes there was away to avoid pregnancy but was to be used within 3 days of unprotected intercourse. Now they would have no role if the pregnancy as its already more than 3 days since you had contact.

You can now just terminate the pregnancy if it is there. There is no way to avoid pregnancy now.

Yes, there are medicines for abortion. But they have to be taken in proper dose and way for effective abortion. Failed abortion can occur with medicine , in the event of which a surgical procedure is required to complete it.

I suggest you to first test for pregnancy.
If positive, you have to consult a gynecologist and get an ultrasound to confirm the pregnancy is intrauterine(within the uterus).
This is important because self medication for abortion can be life threatening. Also failed abortion can occur, with other problems like excess bleeding.

You have to take abortion under supervision of a doctor.
So the appropriate drug for abortion will be told to you once you consult your gynecologist.
With use of drugs , it will take maximum 2 weeks for the abortion to complete and bleeding to stop provided the abortion is successful with drugs.
In the event incomplete abortion occurs with drugs then you need to go for surgical procedure called dilatation and evacuation(D&C).

I hope I have answered your query.

Take care.

Hello there.

I told you the possibilities not to tense you but to make you aware.
This is because wrong steps and self medication in desire of abortion are very common.

You can visit any experienced gynecologist in mumbai.

But the most important, you first do a urine test for pregnancy with any of the pregnancy test kits like I-can, velocit. If positive then only you need to consider abortion.

Take care.
