Thanks for writing to us. Followings are my comments:

1) You DID unprotected sex in SAFEST PERIOD (last 5 days before period due date - extremely safe) and she took I-PILL additionally within first 24 hrs which will give more than 95% protection against unwanted pregnancy. In this case, she has NO chance of pregnancy.

2) I suggest to wait at least 7 to 10 days to get period like withdrawal bleeding. Late period occurs due to hormonal imbalance (effect of the I-pill) and mental stress. She must take healthy diet and avoid stress by meditation or yoga.

3) As there is NO chance of pregnancy, I wouldn't suggest any kind abortion pill. It will give adverse health effect if taken without proper indication.

Hope, it helps for your information. Kindly, close the discussion if you don't have any other query.

Wish her good health and practice safe sex always.

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for follow up query.

If her period due date is 29th of July and you did sex on 26th, then there is NO chance of pregnancy as it was your first sex on SAFE PERIOD.

Pregnancy test result is INVALID because it DOESN'T give any POSITIVE result before 2 weeks of last sex. It is too early for the test. I will hold by this opinion unless there is history of unprotected sexual intercourse before the 26th date.

Presuming, you have not missed any details, I suggest her to wait 7 to 10 days from due date to get period naturally. If she doesn't get her period by this time, she must undergo one blood test for beta- hCG to confirm pregnancy. Early test is insignificant.

Pregnancy depends on proper timing of ovulation (occurs 14 days prior to due date) and unprotected sex with ejaculation. After ovulation, ovum survives for 24 hrs only.

In this context, she ovulated around 15th July and you did sex on 26th July. So, there is NO chance of pregnancy (on regular cycle) if it was her FIRST sex.

Hope, you should understand the fact and clear confusion. Kindly, close the discussion if you don't have any query.

All the best and good luck.

Dr S Patra.
