Brief Answer:
Single dose of levonorgestrol within 72hours will help

Detailed Answer:
Hi Mam,

I understand your query and concern.

I advice you to use barrier contraceptive or oral contraceptive pills from here on to avoid unwanted pregnancy.

You can use single dose of Levonorgestrol 1.5mg(unwanted 72) within 72hours of unprotected pregnancy.

Note: These drugs should be taken under strict medical guidance.

You may get minimal spotting or bleeding within 3-5 days of using the pill, do not worry.

Also get a Transvaginal ultrasound after 2 weeks as a part of followup.

Post your further queries if any,

Thank you.
