Question: Hi Doctor,
I had sex on the night of 11th July around 1am. The condom broke and he ejaculated inside me. I had an i-pill the next morning around 11am. My last period was on 23rd XXXXXXX and I usually have 27-28 days cycle. I havent yet taken a pregnancy test, since its too early to take one, I guess. I'm not sure if the i-pill is 100% effective. Could I be pregnant. Please help.

Brief Answer:
CHANCE OF PREGNANCY IS QUITE LOW.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for writing to us.

In this context, chance of pregnancy is QUITE LOW as you took I-Pill within first 24 hrs of unprotected sex which will give more than 95% protection against unwanted pregnancy.

You will get a withdrawal bleeding within 5-7 days due to effect of the pill and next cycle may be delayed for 1-2 weeks due to hormonal imbalance.

If your period is delayed more than 1 week from due date, you must undergo one home pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy.

Hope, it helps for your information. Kindly, close the discussion if you don't have any other query.

Wish your good health and practice safe sex in future.

Dr Soumen

Thanks for the prompt reply Dr Soumen.
I needed to ask one more thing. I have read a lot about home remedies like papaya seeds, sesame seeds and unripe papaya etc. Do these remedies really work. Should I them a try. Do they have any adverse effects on health.

Above food stuffs work little bit to induce period. You should try to avoid mental stress to get effective result.

You can TRY those foods and they are NOT harmful to your health.

Hi, My wife had a dermoyd cyst removed a few year ago and with it her left ovary. Every since then, she has had a really hard time during her period. Lately, she has experienced a rapid heart rate. She is 23 years old and 105lbs. Generally healthy but she is a smoker. She rarely drinks alcohol and doesn't do any drugs. Her water intake is good as is her diet. She doesn't feel any stress, although, our life is rather stressful. She is anemic and has low blood pressure and her heart rate averages around 100bpm during her period. Is this something we should worry about?

I have had a thudding heartbeat for two days, off and on, mostly on. Also accompanied by shortness of breath. The heartbeat isn't fast or irregular, but I can feel it, like it's heavy in my chest. I've had this before a few years ago, and my doctor thought it was anxiety and wanted to out me on an anti anxiety drug, but I felt like it was a physical issue instead of anxiety. I have low stress, not usually anxious, work out a few times a week, non smoker (for 5 years) recently lost about 35 lbs (1-1/2 years ago) Could this be allergies?
