Is pregnancy possible while on Dornis?

default
Posted on Sat, 30 Jul 2016
Question: Hi, I have few questions regarding my sexual life. My boyfriend do not use condoms. In last 1.5 month I had unprotected sex with him many a times and had Unwanted 72 pill within 72 hr of having sex.
So, in 1.5 months I had taken pills for 5 times. Now am having side effects of it. I got my periods 3 times in a gap of 1 month (14th is the actual date of my periods and for the first time it happened on the exact date but after the gap of 7 days I again got periods and when I got cleared on 3rd July; just after 7 days.. on 11th I got my periods again.
So, is it really a side effect of having so many pills in such a short span of time? Does it going to effect me in conceiving in future?

I visited a doctor also yesterday, she prescribed Dornis 30 to me for 21 days to regular my periods and also suggested that it will work as contraception against unprotected sex. So my second questions is: how effective it will be if I start taking it today onwards and have unprotected sex in next 3 days? Will there be any chance of pregnancy? What will be the side effects of taking this pill regularly?

Hi XXXXX
Welcome
I have gone through your query and do understand your concern.
The pills ( unwanted 72) that you have taken, are known as emergency pills. You are not supposed to use them that frequently. Irregularities in your menses are because of frequently consuming this pills. Kindly do not repeat it again in the future. You have to use one or the other methods of contraception.

Dronis is a contraceptive pill that helps in regularizing the periods. While you are taking Dronis regularly there is no chance of getting pregnant. After you stop taking Dronis then only you should try for conception.
You can have sex, while you are on this pill, but it is important that you take the pill regularly and do not skip it.
Side effects are not much, may cause mild gastritis.
Hope this helps
Take care

ok Thanks for your response.

I won't take emergency pills now.

My concern is :

1. When can I start taking Dornis tablets? Today is the 3rd day of my (3rd time) period and the flow is very low. SO can I start it today onwards?


2. If I start it today onwards, then can I have unsafe sex after 3 days of consuming Dornis and do not take emergency pill after unsafe intercourse? Will there be any chance of pregnancy? Will Dornis start effecting in just 3 days?

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Good to hear from you
You will take your first pill on the first day of your period. You may need to use back-up birth control, such as condoms or a spermicide, when you first start using this medicine. It is better to avoid unprotected sex for week, after you start this pills.
Hope this helps.
Take care

Hello doctor, well thanks for answering my queries...it's really helpful. I have started taking oral pills yesterday onwards..

Just one more query....

What if I take emergency pill also to avoid any kind of risk from unprotected sex while consuming Dornis dialy..?
As Dornis will start working after 7 days of consuming it... so can I take emergency pill just in case of unprotected sex before these 7 days? I hope I cleared my point, let me elaborate more as this is my last chance to ask any question:

Suppose I get intimate with my boy friend in next 2 -3 days (before completing a week of Dornis consumption as suggested by you).. so can I take emergency pill to avoid pregnancy? My boyfriend don't want to use protection :(

Will that emergency pill work? Or consuming both emergency pill as well as Dornis will affect my health in a bad way? Plz explain me properly..

It is not advised to use emergency contraceptive while on OCP.
Taking them together will affect your health, so do not take an emergency pill. Avoid sex during this period or use other method of contraception.
