Hello,
Thank you for posting a query.

First give me information about the following questions.

1.     Tell me the date of your last menstrual period.
2.     When did you start the oral contraceptive?
3.     What is the composition of the pill?
4.     Did you miss any pill during these 13 days?

Look, from your description, I think there is very little chance of pregnancy. But, for a better advice, give the answers of the above questions.

Regards.

Hello,
Thank you for writing back.

So, you have not missed any pill.

In that case, you do not need any emergency contraceptive. Because, the pill containing levonogesterol and ethinylestradiol is a very efficient drug. It has very low failure rate.

But, you have to continue it captiously. Do not miss any pill.

Regarding the use of pills, you should start it from the first day of menstruation, and continue for 21 days and then give 7 days gap and then start again. Do not start it any time between 2 periods. Because, in that case, you may experience increased gap between 2 periods.

Hope you have your answers.

Regards.

Hello,

Thank you for writing back.

Look, the pill you are taking contains estrogen and progesterone analogues. They increase the consistency of vaginal secretion and prevents sperm motility. They inhibit ovulation. If ovulation has occurred and suppose fertilization has occurred by unprotected sex, then they will prevent anchoring and further events. Thus they provides contraception.

From the above discussion, do you think there is any possibility that the pill will not work for first month? I do not know, from where you get this idea. But it is wrong.

It will definitely prevent pregnancy. If you have done any intercourse in between 20 and 22nd December, then it will not provide contraception for that period.

More over, he did not discharge inside you. Then there is very little risk as i described previously.

Lastly, you do not need to take any emergency contraceptive. Continue taking pills. Just do not miss any pill.

Hope you have your answers.

Regards.

Hi, my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex but he didn t ejaculate inside me. Also, he penetrated but not so deep so my hymen didn t break. I was scared and we stopped. But after some research, I found out that there are possibilities of getting pregnant without breaking the hymen. As a precaution, I took Nordette as an ECP, as there s none sold here in the Philippines. I took my first 4 pills on June 1, 2:30PM, 29hrs after the deed, and took my second dose of 4 pills on June 2, 2:30AM. It s been 4 days since the last intake and I have only experienced slight nausea for a short period of time after the 2nd dose. There is still no withdrawal bleeding and I m afraid that the pill isn t working on me. I also have an irregular period and I ve been delayed for almost 3 months before the said intercourse. How will I now that Nordette is working? What will I next do if I don t bleed within the next week? Thanks!

Hi.. I was on my period 2 weeks ago and and I had sex last week monday and a few hours later I took levonelle 1500
the thing is that my parents are not aware that ive taken the medicine and are suspicious so they want me to do a blood test next monday... I just want to know that how long does the medicine stay in the body and if they will be able to find out if I took the contraceptive medicine or not through a blood test?

Good day, Doctor! My girlfriend and I had unprotected sex on the 6th day of her menstrual cycle. Due to anxiety and just to make sure, I made her take 4 pills of Nordette 54 hours after the encounter and another four pills 12 hours after the first dose. It has already been 10 days since she took the ECP and she bled for 1 and a half days. I am wondering if this was withdrawal bleeding, a side effect of the drug she took, or implantation bleeding. The blood discharge was bright red according to her and she has not felt any cramping sensation. What are the chances that she's pregnant? Are we in the clear?

To who it may concern, I appreciate your help a lot. I could not find the answer online, and I currently don t have a personal physician to ask. I am eighteen years old, and I plan to go back on my combined birth control oral contraceptive called ,Tri-Sprintec. I have a question that worries me a lot. If this birth control pills are triphasic, have three different phases, each week has a different amount of progesterone hormone, so if I throw up in one hour after taking a pill and it is most likely missed and take next one from the same phase, will it reduce the effectiveness of my birth controls because of taking,in this case, six instead of seven pills of that phase according to the whole cycle ?
