Brief Answer: Pregnancy is unlikely after taking I-pill. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for trusting us with your health concern. November 19 is the fertile period for your friend considering her last date of periods. Precum can cause a pregnancy although the chances are remote. Even if you passed urine before having sex, the remote chances of pregnancy are present. I-pill is a single dose tablet and should be taken as early as possible and not later than 72 hours of unprotected sex or contraceptive failure. It is 95% effective within 24 hours of unprotected sex. Since your friend has taken it within one hour, there is no need to worry. It can cause a mild spotting or bleeding 2-3 days after having the pill. There is no need to repeat the dose. Her routine period can also be delayed by a few days. Do not worry. This is not indicative of pregnancy. But I would advise you to use a surer way contraception like regular contraceptive oral pills as I pill if taken repeatedly can cause some menstrual irregularities. She is likely to have her next period by 10th December. Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have. Wishing you good health. Regards. Dr. Rakhi Tayal.

Brief Answer: I-pill works in 95% cases. Detailed Answer: Hello. Thanks for writing again. I-pill is effective in 95% of cases. You need to wait till your next periods and if the periods are overdue by more than 10 days then get a urine test done to find out about the status of pregnancy. In Case the test is positive, the further management depends on the time of conception. It is too early right now to start worrying. The withdrawal bleeding is likely within next 2-3 days. It may not happen if there is no spotting till 25th Nov. Absence of withdrawal bleeding does not indicate a pregnancy. You can only wait for your periods now. Please do not worry. Regards.

Brief Answer: Periods will come. Detailed Answer: Hello. The withdrawal bleeding if comes will be before 25th Nov. She will have her periods by 10th December. The absence or delay of periods is more likely to be due to a hormonal imbalance caused by these emergency pills rather than a pregnancy. Please do not worry.

Brief Answer: It is her normal period. Detailed Answer: Hello. The bleeding she got today is likely to be her normal period. This is not a withdrawal bleeding. The bleeding can be slightly heavier than usual due to the mild hormonal disturbance. She will not get a bleeding on 10th now. Regards.
