Question: Hi doctor, We had a baby in February 23 2015 I.e almost nine months completed now. My wife is still giving breast feeding. Today we had unsafe sex and we are worried if it gives a pregnancy, for which we are not ready at this stage. My wife is having periods regularly from past 4 months and she recently had the period between 13-16 of this month. Can you please let us know any tablet which stops pregnancy and also not give any effect to breast feeding or baby.
