Thanks for the query in HCM

Even though there is a slight chance of getting pregnant by pre cum,
she is highly unlikely to get pregnant since she took i-pill within 48 hours.
Her periods may alter due to the consumption of i-pill.
Hence if she do not have her periods on her expected day, you can do a urine pregnancy card test, which is freely available over the counter from the pharmacy to confirm that there is no evidence of pregnancy.

Hope your concern is cleared now.

doctor just to clarify....whether it was taking i pill that made it highly unlikely to become preganant. i heard that precum can only contain sperm if traces are left over from last ejaculation, which i never had. so can i assume pre cum is safe.
and what are the chances of the pill working as the prescrition says the % of chances reduce by passage of time. can i understand it would have even worked at taking the tab within 72 hrs of the act.
please tell what is the success rate of the pill working.

As you said, Pre cum may contain some sperms.
Since she has taken I Pill within 48 Hours, the chance of pregnancy is very less.
Before telling you the effectiveness of i-pill, I would like to know
1. Date of Last Menstrual Period
2. Date of unprotected exposure(s)

You had intercourse in a risky period in terms of pregnancy. Since she has taken i-pill, chances of pregnancy is less.
You need to wait till the expected date of her next periods and if periods are not occuring on that day, better test her early morning sample of urine using pregnancy card test.

doctor ....i came to know it was a risky period. so as a precaution only took i pill.
just wanted to confirm whether taking the pill close to 48 hrs after the act can be considered in a safe zone.
moreoever the concept of precum having sperm did not go thru generally its secreted by a seperate gland and has a seperate path before joining the uthera.
if there any symptom that the pill worked other than wait till period days.
can i take a final word that the chances of getting preganant thru pre cum is less and since pill taken that chance is almost negligible in medical terms.

Since the exposure is Pre Cum and there is genital fluid contact, it is unlikely to get pregnant
