Thanks for writing in.

In the view of recent irregular cycles in your case pregnancy is least likely.

Ovum from females is only viable for 24 hours after the ovulation takes place.

Since she didnt had periods it is least likely to get her pregnant.

Also if you are very sure and dont want her to be pregnant ,you can take unwanted 72 tablets.These are hormonal pills .These can further cause irregular cycles
for 1 -2 months.

Though chances of her being pregnant are least likely ,if you dont want to take chances you can take unwanted 72 tablets.

The decision is in your hands.

If you need further clarification do let me know.

Dear Sir,

Thank you so much for your valuable reply.

Sir, She did not get even first period after miscarriage and if she use now Unwanted 72 will it be affecting to her future pregnancy. I am promise that I will be fully under control from now onwards for 2 to 3 months.

Please suggest me whether can I use I-Pill. I am awaiting for your reply.

She can take I PILL/unwanted 72 tablets.

You need to know the following things before taking i-pill:

i-pill works best when used as early as possible after unprotected sex or contraceptive failure, but not later than 72 hours.

i-pill is ineffective if you are already pregnant.

i-pill has no long-term or serious side effects, and is safe to use for almost every woman.

Nausea, vomiting and headache are some common side effects after taking i-pill.

She might also have some lower abdominal pain or find your breasts more tender than usual. All this should stop within a day or two.

There are chances of unexpected vaginal bleeding, but this is not XXXXXXX and should clear up by the time you have your next period. i-pill might also cause your next period to come early or later than normal.

In nutshell you can take Unwanted 72 provided it has not crossed 72 hrs after the act.

Hope this helps.
