Question: Hello: I had a sexual intercourse with my wife today with out protection. I am a bit worried if that would land in pregnancy. She has been taking tri previfem since past 6 months everyday for acne which is a birth control pill.
Will this help? or do we need to take any other pill to stop pregnancy?

Brief Answer:
NO CHANCE OF PREGNANCY.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for your information.

According to her last period date, you did unprotected sex in SAFE PERIOD and she has been taken regular contraceptive pill TRI-PREVIFEM for last 6 months.

Here, she has NO chance of pregnancy as there is enough protection (more than 99%). So, you wouldn't be worried much.

Hope, it helps for your information. Kindly, close the discussion if you don't have any other query.

Wish her good health and practice safe sex.

Hi I have been bleeding since October the 21 so actually 3 weeks or so and have missed my normal period as this irregular bleeding occured 2 weeks before my normal period is due and it is still on. I have been perscribed Norethisterone to take 1 tablet 3 times a day I have taken those for 6 days and at that time the bleeding started to reduce but never stopped, I had to stop taking the Norethisterone because I had to start my new pack of Contraceptive pill ( Femodene ) !! This is extremely annoying i can t wait for it to stop Any suggestion on how to stop the irregular bleeding??
