Then on Monday 13th June I slept with another man, but he had anual sex with me, he cum in me. Now, I was so worried I took the morning after pill called Levonelle-1. I now feel sick, very tired, backache, loss of appatite. Am I pregnant?
Doctor :   hi
User :   Hello
Doctor :   Dr. XXXXXXXX here. Let me read what you have typed

Doctor :   *take the
User :   i had just finished my period, so no
Doctor :   when was your last menstrual period?
User :   2 weeks ago
User :   Please tell me that I cannot be pregnant!
Doctor :   please specify the date when you started your periods. it will help me answer your questions in better way
User :   ok one momment
User :   2nd June to 8th June
Doctor :   also, in how many days gap do you get your periods once? is it 28 days or more or less than that?
User :   normal
User :   once a month
Doctor :   ok. if your cycles are of 28-30 days and your periods started on 2nd june your fertile period when possibility of egg being present in your body is between 9th-17th June
Doctor :   and any unprotected intercouse during this time will result in pregnancy
User :   But what I am saying doctor is that I took the morning after pill
Doctor :   when did you take the morning after pill?
User :   and now I feel sick, loss of appaitie, lower back pain
User :   Tuesday 15th June
Doctor :   was it after the 11th june intercourse that you took the pill?
User :   boobs are sore too
User :   yes
Doctor :   if you have taken it on 15th June, the chances of pil not working are high
Doctor :   your symptoms suggest early pregnancy
Doctor :   get a blood beta HCG test and a scan done to confirm it
User :   but hang on...both men used the pull out method...
Doctor :   as sometimes in early pregnancy urine test might come negative.
Doctor :   anal sex will not have risks for pregnancy
Doctor :   but vaginal sex even with pullout method does have chances
User :   are you sure Dr
Doctor :   since you were during your fertile period
Doctor :   yes I am sure very much, I am telling your risks based on my experience with patients
Doctor :   you should have taken the morning pill on 12th
Doctor :   for it to give you maximum protection
Doctor :   since chances for you to be pregnant is more with intercourse on 11th June (vaginal intercourse) than with anal one on 13th June.
Doctor :   based on the details and symptoms that you have given, I have told you the possibilities
User :   Ok I am back
Doctor :   have you followed what I have said uptil now?
User :   yes
User :   but the morning after pill has side affects right?
Doctor :   please get back to me if you have any doubts
Doctor :   it doe shave side effects but the symptoms you described suggest early pregnancy
Doctor :   most common side effect of the morning after pill is nausea, and haeadche
User :   The vaginal incourse, the man said he did not come in me
User :   yes I have nausea mainly & really tired,
Doctor :   breast soreness, triedness, backache, appetite problem, are related to early pregnancy
Doctor :   since you were on your fertile period time, and with vaginal intercourse, chances are that you are pregnant morning after pill should be taken within 12 hours of unprotected intercourse for maximum benefit
User :   I read on the phamplet of Levonelle -1 that you can have tiredness, nausea, tender breasts as side affects
Doctor :   you have taken it very much later, so the efficacy to prevent pregnancy is in doubt
User :   and best taken with within 72 hours
Doctor :   and hence I am attributing your symptoms to pregnancy more than to the pill use.
User :   I dont want to pregnant. Please tell the earliest way of finding out ASAP
Doctor :   your risk of being pregnant is high with intercourse of 11th june . if you have taken pill on 15th June it is likely that pill will not be effective
User :   But it has only been 4 days since the incident, is it possible to expereince such symptoms of pregnancy?? so soon?
Doctor :   to find out if your pregnant, earliest possible way is what I suggested you, to do a beta HCG blood test which gives accurate results
User :   how early can I do this
User :   tomorrow
Doctor :   sometimes early symptoms like these are felt by women as early as 1 day after the fruitful intercourse
Doctor :   wait till atleast 15 days are over since your last intercourse
Doctor :   for the tests to show correct results
User :   but he told me Dr he used the pull out method.
Doctor :   alternatively, you can discuss with your gynecologist about getting a special test done to measure accurate HCG amounts in blood
User :   I serioulsy do not want to be preganant.... The abortion pill, tell me more please
Doctor :   as I told you it has highest failure rate due to the fact that sperms can be present in pre-cum or the male lubricating fluid
User :   So it is impossible to get pregnant through anual sex
Doctor :   and since you were in your fertile period (the time when egg is released from ovary) the risks for pregnancy is still there even if pull out method was used
User :   OMG so I could be pregant
Doctor :   anal sex will not result in pregnancy usually. if semen has trickled towards vagina and has entered in, then chances are there to be pregnant
User :   If I am pregnant I am no way ready.....I will be taking the abortion pill
Doctor :   if the vaginal sex was on 13th and you took pill on 15th, then yes, the protection of pill would be there
Doctor :   and the pregnancy could have been avoided
User :   Thats what happend
Doctor :   by taking it within 12-72 hours of the intercourse on 11th June
Doctor :   if you decide to take the abortion pill, make sure you take it undersupervision, as sometimes it can lead to severe bleeding and life threatening complications. do not self medicate yourself
Doctor :   discuss with your doctor about taking it and if it is safe to take it since you already have taken the morning after pill
User :   From the 11th to (15th in ther morning was the day I took the morning after pill
Doctor :   such that complications due to hormonal reactions be avoided
Doctor :   have you followed what I have said?
User :   have you heard of the morning after pill Levonelle-1
User :   yes I know from the 13th -15th
Doctor :   yes I have. it is for emergency contraception and contains
Doctor :   levonorgestrel 1.5 mg
User :   My god I need to know now if I am pregnant asap. Do I hv to wait 15 days fro blood test?
Doctor :   a high progesterone level to avoid pregnancy and cause withdrwl bleeding to not let implantation happen
User :   I took levonelle 1
Doctor :   yes I know, and I am telling you about it only
Doctor :   not any other pill
User :   I need to know if I am pregnant or not...I cant wait 15 days Dr AAAAAAA
Doctor :   please get back to me if you are having doubts
Doctor :   since it is only about 6 days since the intercourse that could have resulted in pregnancy
Doctor :   you cannot be sure if the test will help, but you can go ahead with a beta HCG blod test
Doctor :   to see for the hormone levels
Doctor :   if it is more than normal, it would suggest probable pregnancy
Doctor :   a repeat test after 3 days if shows more increase in the hormone level, it will confirm the pregnancy.
Doctor :   so you can get it done in next 2-3 days time once and repeat again after 3 days of the first test
User :   Levonelle pill says I should get a period within 3 weeks, if I dont I could be preganant right?
Doctor :   or else, you can do the test only once after 10-15 days of the intercourse (probable date of conception)
User :   I seriously feel nasuated, tiredness, it feels like period symptoms
