Brief Answer: RISK OF PREGNANCY IS THERE. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for writing to us. You did sex close to her Ovulation day (14 days prior to due date) or fertile days. Therefore, chance of pregnancy is quite high. In this circumstance, she can take emergency contraceptive pill like Unwanted 72 or I-Pill to avoid unwanted pregnancy. It gives more than 95% protection if it is taken within first 24 hrs of sex and around 85% within 24 to 48 hrs. Hope, it helps for you. Let me know, if you need any clarification. Wish your good health and take care yourself. Regards, Dr Soumen For future query, you can directly approach me through WWW.WWWW.WW

Brief Answer: DETAILS ARE GIVEN BELOW. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for follow up query. 1) I have already mentioned the pills name (UNWANTED 72 or I-PILL) in my earlier text. Just go through it properly. She would take it at the earliest. 2) Side effects are quite tolerable and nothing much serious like nausea, abdominal cramp, vomiting, spotting etc. She will get a withdrawal bleeding within 7 to 10 days. It is quite common and normal thing. 3) At this stage, emergency contraceptive pill is the best medicine to prevent unwanted pregnancy. However, one home pregnancy test is required to rule out pregnancy if her period is delayed more than 1 week. Early pregnancy test is less significant. 4) If pregnancy test becomes positive, medical abortion is the best choice and it can be done effectively up to 7 weeks of gestational age (max 9 weeks). It is calculated from last menstrual period date. One ultrasound scan is required to determine the nature of conception (tubal or uterine). 5) If medical abortion is required, then you must consult with local healthcare provider or gynecologist for proper prescription and direction of the prescribed medicine. She NEVER take abortion pill by own. The procedure is associated with several risk like excessive vaginal bleeding, cramp, fainting, vomiting etc. Some supportive medications are also needed for emergency purpose. Hope, it helps for your information. If you don't have any other query, you can close the discussion. Good luck. All the best. Regards, Dr Soumen

Brief Answer: EARLY PREGNANCY TEST IS INVALID. TAKE THE PILL. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for additional query. No, it is too early for the pregnancy test and it will be invalid test if it is done now. Pregnancy test is valid 2 weeks after sexual intercourse or ovulation time. In this case, she can undergo one home pregnancy test after her missed period or 7th December and not before that. Therefore, she would take emergency pill at the earliest to avoid possible unwanted pregnancy. Sooner will be better for her. Hope, above information is helpful for your understanding. If you have any further query, you can revert back any time. Regards, Dr Soumen

A week later i had sex again but this time i took an emergency contraceptive pill. Bt still i'm not having my periods till now where 16 days is already over. Am i pregnent?

I'm definitely not sexually active, but yesterday I found this purplish brownish discharge in my underwear. I'm supposed to start my period in about a week and am on birth control for my migraines. I put a tampon in and took it out later to see if I could figure out if it was blood or whatever it was. But it didn't smell right or look right. When I put it in the toilet it filled up with water and definitely showed that it was, in fact, a purple. Could you tell me what it possibly is? Maybe a side effect of the sronyx(the birth control I'm using)? I'm going off of that soon because of other side effects, so is that a possibility?

I've been having dark brown discharge about a week before my period. I am on birth control, I take the pills. Sometimes I take it a couple hours later than I should and I sex with my boyfriend. I had sex with my boyfriend when I was supposed to start my period in May but it never came because I spotted in the middle and had switched birth controls. I then had sex with him again but when I was on the pill on the 15th and he did NOT cum inside of me. Could I be pregnant?
