Brief Answer: PREGNANCY VERY LESS LIKELY, NOTHING ELSE NEEDED Detailed Answer: HelloXXXXX Thanks for writing to us with your health concern. When taken within 24 hours, the I pill is more than 95 % effective in preventing a pregnancy. Plus you did not ejaculate inside her. Also, if she has regular cycles, then you had sex on day 21 ( assuming a 28 day cycle ), when ovulation is less likely. All said and done, the chances of her being pregnant are less than 5 %. There is nothing else you can do, other than wait it out, and in case she misses her period due next week, take a pregnancy test. Rest assured, chances of pregnancy are very less. Take care. Please feel free to ask for further clarifications.

Thank you for your reply.. It's reassuring I was doing some research and it says the period will be delayed due to I pill. We had sex twice the first time was alright but still she insisted on taking I pill Just to be on the safer side. And the second time the condom broke so had to take anyways. The question being is it safe to take I pill on a regular basis. Also will her period be delayed if yes by how many days approximately. I know I am asking too many questions but I am just freaking out sorry. Also I hope the question remains as anonymous.

Brief Answer: DETAILED BELOW Detailed Answer: Hello again. You are not asking too many questions. Please do not stress out - I am glad to answer any queries you might. Do not freak out too, the portal is absolutely anonymous, and your identity is unknown to me . The I pill can do both - prepone or postpone her period , generally by a week, sometimes, more, maybe maximum upto 10 days. Also, it is NOT safe to take I pill on a regular basis. It is less effective than regular contraceptive measures , and will greatly affect her normal menstrual cycle. If her period is delayed, take a pregnancy test anyways. As such, chances of pregnancy are very low. All the best. ANd yes, feel free to contact me anytime using the following direct link - WWW.WWWW.WW I would be happy to provide assistance anytime.

Brief Answer: DETAILED BELOW Detailed Answer: Hi again. Yes, you are absolutely right . Do not use the I pill indiscriminately. She can easily take birth control pills , which nowadays are quite safe, with minimal side effects and there are lots of options to choose from. She can start with Femilon . It has to be started from day 2 or day 3 of her menstrual cycle. Alongwith that, condoms can be used to have double protection , particularly in the first month of pill use. All the best.
