Hi XXXXXXX
Welcome to healthcare Magic!
You can take the morning after pill or the method called emergency contraception.
You should take the Norgestrel containing tablets course.
Take one 750micrograms tab stat and take one more at 12 hours later.
It provides full protection if taken within 72 hours.
PILL72 or ECEE72 are two good preparation in India.
I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you.
Take Care!

I am healthy average weight and I am on bio-identical homones and a low dose of thyroid med. befor bed I take prohesterone to sleep. But all thru the night I experience bouts of high body temperature-not flashes, just a slow steady constand heat that causes my entire body to sweat. Do you think the thyroid dose might be to high or can a person have to much progesterone?

Hello. My name is Ms. Eleanor. I have a question about certain affects I am having after having taken Cipro, Progesterone and Doxyclone. I took the Cipro for 3 days only because I didn t like the feelings it was giving me, but I continued with the rest of my prescription for 10 days. The thing is I am into day 15 and I am feeling horrible. Tingling in my fingers and toes, headache, nausea, upset stomach, extreme fatigue, anxiety, muscle twitch and now that I went online and read all of the horror stories about Cipro (fluroide toxic), I am scared to Death I am about to be afflicted by a death diagnosis. Please help me.
