Posted on Thu, 3 Dec 2015
Question: Hello,
I had unprotected sex , not exactly, on 9th November and as I said it was not properly inserted into her and was just for less than 5 min only . Also I am sure that not even a drop of mine ├žame out at that time. She got her last periods on 27th October and I guess it was the 14th day after her cycke when we came closer. It was a first time for both of us and she is still virgin. She is so worried. She is not believing me and had done pregnancy test on 12th November ,it came out negative. Still , she took an ipill before hours left for completing 72 hours. Still , she is so tensed about being pregnant later on as her next date is due on 27-28th November which is too far to wait. Please guide , what should be the consequences now. Please.

Brief Answer:
The chances of pregnancy are low.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
Thanks for trusting hcm about your health care.
I have gone through your history and understand your concerns.
The chances of pregnancy are quite low in your case as you were not ejaculated inside and she had i-pill within 72 hrs.
It is too early to do urine test for pregnancy, she should get her pregnancy test only when she missed her period by 7 days to rule out pregnancy.
She may get her period delay due to i-pill.
So now she should wait for her next period.
Hope found useful, feel free to discuss more information.
Good luck.

Hello
ma'am,
Thanks for this answer. One more thing I want to share that just after that relation, I did masturbation cz I didn't do it inside her and also she is virgin and me too. That's why m sure that I was not ejaculated inside her. also she took an ipill before 5-6 hours of completion of 72 hours. In case of any rare chance of pregnancy, would it be effective now? Although , she has not suffered from any type of pain at that time and even I didn't put it completely inside her. please reassure us in this condition .
Hoping for your best cooperation .
Thanks
