Hi
Welcome to XXXXXXX

The problem you have acquired are symptoms that have appeared after have sexual intercourse which is always taken as sexually transmitted disease. The itch and eczema is mostly due to fungal infection however gonorrhea and chlamydia also cause such symptoms.

The patient when acquire STDs are screened for all sexually transmitted disease both as diagnostic and preventive measure so therefore you are recommended to visit you doctor and screen for STDs.

If you still have some query, feel free to ask

Thank you for your quick response, i will be visiting a doctor, concerning being pregnant, my partner pulled out, but im still skeptical, the pharmacist said i could take both tablets since its almost three days since the incident, what are the chances of me being pregnant, and how soon should i take a pregnancy test?

Thanks for the reply

The post coital are effective more than 90% in the first 24 hours but loses its efficacy by 25% in next 24 hours and by 50% in the next 24 hours. You have taken it on the 3rd day which increases your risk of pregnancy. The urine pregnancy test gives positive result after 2 weeks of conception however if you want faster confirmation then you can have a blood test which is called Beta HCG levels which gives positive result on the first day of pregnancy.

If you still have some query, feel free to ask
