Unprotected sex. Taking thyronorm. Do I need to take emergency contraceptive to avoid pregnancy?

HI Dr., I am on a course of Thyronom 75 mg prescribed by my consulting doctor to treat my thyroid problems. I have had unprotected sex during this course. I want to know, if it is safe for me to have emergency contraceptive pills like I-pill during this period when I am having Thyronom as well. Does emergency contraceptive pills threaten the possibility of making me infertile for pregnancy and giving birth in the future?

Thanks for posting your query.
Thyronorm is just like a natural hormone, it should not be considered as a medicine.
Lack of thyroid hormone (also called as hypothyroidism) may cause infertility but Thyronorm helps in keeping thyroid hormone in normal range.
You can take emergency contraceptive pills simultaneously.
Emergency contraceptive pills works by inhibiting the attachment of developing fetus in uterine lining.
These contraceptive pills don't have any effect on the hormones like LH and FSH.
So you are safe after taking these medications.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
