Posted on Wed, 1 Jun 2016 in Women's Health
Question: Hello doctor. Actually I am just 19 years old. And I didn't have sex. But my boyfriend to urns the side of my vagina after touching semen. So just for safety sake I took the ipil. I have mild pcos. Very small cysts almost negligible. I was diagnosed when I was thirteen but since then I have never got irregular periods. And I lost weight and it got better. But will the I pill affect my health. Or will it affect future pregnancies ? I only took it once. Please help me I am scared.

Brief Answer:
Wait for withdrawal bleeding. No effect on future pregnancy.

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for writing to us. I understand your concern.

1) First of all, you have NO chance of pregnancy with above sexual activity and took I-Pill additionally for extra protection.

2) You will get a withdrawal bleeding like period within 3-7 days due to effect of the pill. However, you may face irregular or late period for next 1-2 cycles due to hormonal imbalance and associated mental stress.

3) Very small cyst is NOT much problematic if you had regular cycle previously. It has NO bad effect on your health or future pregnancy. Don't be worried much about this thing. Maintain a healthy life style.

Hope, I have answered your query. Wish your good health and take care. Kindly, close the discussion if you don't have any other query.

For future query, you can directly approach me through
