Hello,

Thank you for posting a query.

Look, your period started on 11th April. That means you were within 10 days after period. We clinically take 10 to 20 days as fertile period. So, on basis of this theory, there is low chance of pregnancy.

Moreover you have taken unwanted 72 within few hours. It will lower chance of getting pregnant significantly.

So, do not worry. There is very low chance of pregnancy.

You have nothing to do right now to prevent pregnancy. Just wait for your regular period. If you miss that you have to do a home pregnancy test on or after that day of missed period. The next line of management will be determined thereafter.

Lastly, do not worry. Just hope for the best.

Hope this information suffices. Let me know, if you have any more question.

Regards.

Hello,

Thank you for writing back.

Look, it is difficult to say that the unwanted 72 will be 100% fruitful. Because, contraception failure may occur in few number of cases. SO, this guarantee cannot be given.

So, you are not at all 100% safe right now.

Chances are very low, but present.

The unwanted 72 has more than 95% efficacy. But, it does not have 100% efficacy.

Hope you have your answers.

Regards.

Hello,

Thank you for writing back.

Look, standing up right after intercourse and washing your genital part does not add any advantage.

Because, only one sperm is enough for pregnancy.

So, those things do not reduce the chances of pregnancy.

Hope you have your answer.
