Hi,

Thanks for writing in.

You had unprotected sexual intercourse on 9th September, means it was your time for your period if you did not take Primolut N.

This is the safest period and again you were on Primolut N tablet so there are no chances of having pregnancy.

Hope, I answered your query. If you have further query or clarification, please ask. I will be happy to help.

Wish you good health.

Hi AAAA

Thanks for writing back.

Tablet primolut N is not used for avoiding pregnancy. It is used for delaying periods. You took it for the same reason as well. Therefore, you may stop taking this tablet now and within 2-3 days you will get your period.

I do not think there is a need to take I pill tablet or any other contraceptive pill now.

I answered your query. If you do not have further query or clarification, you can close the discussion and rate the answer.

Thanks.

Hi AAAA

Thanks for writing back.

If your period as you said is normal and have 24 days cycle then there is no chance of having pregnancy.

In any case, if your next menstrual cycle does not happen on time, please do a home pregnancy test.
