Question: Hi Doctor, I have started taking femilon from the first day of my periods. Can we continue to participate in sex from the 4th day onwards i.e., after bleeding stops without using any condoms or any other prevention method. Or do I need to wait for few more days? if yes, how long? Please answer

Thanks for posting your query.
Since you have started taking femilon from day 1 in this cycle, it is best to use a condom till day 7 i.e., till 3 days after you finish with your periods.
After that you can have an unprotected intercourse without worrying for the pregnancy.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.

Thanks much for your answer doctor. I have one more query.
After completing 21 tablets, i am asked to stop taking tablets from 22nd day for next 7 days. Generally, I bleed only for 3 days, so my periods lasts for 3 days only.
If my periods start on 22nd day can we have still have unprotected sex from 25th day to 28th day? Or, if my periods start from 26th day, can we have still have unprotected sex from 22nd day to 25th day. I mean, My question is, can we have unprotected sex in those 7 days gap of tablets or do we need to use condoms? Please confirm.

Thanks for writing again.
You can have unprotected sex during the 7-day pill free period too. Usually the bleeding starts after 2 days of stopping the pill. But you need to start with your next pack after a 7-day pill free interval.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.

Hi, I am considering having laser hair removal, am HIV+ and currently on medication, but fit and healthy. Is there any reason why I would not be advised to have the procedure? I have not told the clinician of my status nor do I plan to, however are there any risks associated with the procedure or could it have an adverse effect due to the medications?

uhm, Heya... i find it hard to believe i'm doing this, but: I'm an 18 year old male, about 1.90m tall.. today my girlfriend came over and had condoms with her, thinking that we could do something that none of us have done before (if you catch my drift), normaly i have an errection everytime we're kissing and getting a bit "kinky", but when i tried to put the condom on, or even reach for it, my errection just vanished, each time... is it all in my mind or is there something i can do to overcome this shyness problem? (ps. this took me completley by suprise and everything)
