Brief Answer: CHANCE OF PREGNANCY IS QUITE LOW. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for writing to us. First of all, you did sex with broken condom close to her fertile days. However, she took Unwanted 72 pill within 3 hrs and it is good thinking. This pill will give more than 95% protection against unwanted pregnancy. In this case, chance of her pregnancy is quite LOW. Second thing, she will get a withdrawal bleeding within 5 to 7 days due to effect of the pill and next period may be delayed for 1 to 2 weeks from due date due to hormonal imbalance and mental stress. Lastly, she must undergo one home pregnancy test if her period is delayed more than 1 week from due date. Early test is insignificant. So, you must wait for her upcoming period and next management can be done only after pregnancy test. Hope, I have answered your query. Kindly, close the discussion if you don't have any other query. Wish your good health and take care yourself. Regards, Dr Soumen For future query, you can directly approach me through WWW.WWWW.WW

Brief Answer: DETAILS ARE GIVEN. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for follow up query. 1) Yes, women also releases fluid due to secretion of various glands during sexual excitement. 2) Yes, fluid from vagina may stick to upper part of condom during intercourse and it is quite normal thing. 3) If you are sure that the condom was intact totally and semen was deposited within this & not outside, then chance of pregnancy is extremely rare after taking Unwanted 72 pill. Wait for her next period and do the test to be sure. Hope, it helps for your information. Kindly, close the discussion. All the best and good luck. Regards, Dr Soumen

Brief Answer: DETAILS ARE GIVEN BELOW. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for response. On positive pregnancy test, medical abortion can be done with abortion pill in the early weeks of pregnancy (up to 7 weeks). However, self administration of abortion pill is not recommended as this process is associated with several complication like excessive vaginal bleeding, vomiting, abdominal cramp, fainting etc. For safe termination of pregnancy, you have to consult with local gynecologist for complete prescription, uses, direction and in emergency purpose. Hope, it helps for you. Kindly, close the discussion. Regards, Dr Soumen
