Thank you for posting your query.

The fact that you had periods after sex ensures that you would not get pregnant. Moreover, you have taken the contraceptive pill also within 24 hours. So, there is no need to worry regarding the chance of pregnancy.

ESR is a non specific blood test, which is usually elevated in infection. In case you develop fever, it may be important, otherwise, it need not be given much importance.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you have any more queries.

Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM
