Question: I had sex last night with my husband without a condom,the duration was short,he took his penis out when his semen was about to erect, but he is not sure whether he was able to took it out at right time. Is there a chance of pregnancy? My period ended just 3 days back.if there is a possibility, how to get rid of it? Please suggest some medicines to avoid this pregnancy..

Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

I understand that you are anxious about the possibility of pregnancy after having unprotected sexual intercourse with your husband last night. Now, firstly, since your period has ended just 3 days back, you are NOT in your fertile period. So, it is very unlikely that you can get pregnant even if you have had unprotected sexual intercourse.

The "withdrawal method", that is, when the male partner withdraws his penis just before ejaculation is not a 100% effective method of preventing pregnancy. So, you have to be careful about this in the future. But again, since you are not in your fertile period, your chances of pregnancy are very minimal.

However, if you don't want to take any chances, you can take an "emergency contraceptive pill", in order to prevent any chances of pregnancy. You can get this at your local pharmacy, without a prescription.

Tablet name: i-pill (other brands available: unwanted 69, t-pill72)
Dosage: single dosage
How to take: one tablet, after meals
When to take: as early as possible, within 72 hours after unprotected sex

Wish you all the best.

Hello again,

i-pill has no long-term or serious side effects, and is safe to use for almost every woman. It does NOT affect your chances of having kids in the future. So, you don't have to worry about this at all.

Some persons may experience mild side effects like vomiting sensation and headache after taking i-pill. You might also have some light lower abdominal pain or have some tenderness in your breasts. All these side effects should stop on their own, within a day or two. Also, your next period may get slightly preponed or postponed by a few days. Again, this is nothing to worry about.

yes, I had a colonoscopy followed up by a barium and was diagnosed with dirvirtulosis . I believe this is a pouch in the colon. At present I have had diahrea for 5 days and my family doctor said it was dirvirticulosis. However I have not had any pain or vomiting. I have reflux to which I take Losec , which I know can cause some diahrea. He put me on antibiotics . what should my next step be?. I watch my diet and in the past have had regular bms sometimes 3 a day

My Mom (age 50 years) is having severe problem of intestine, gastric problem with acute vomiting..whatever she eats/drinks gets vommitted immediately. Earlier she had problem in natural call and had pain in stomach. We took her to a doctor and he diagnosed for few days but the problem is not getting sorted out...Although Natural Calls are now controlled from last 2 days and stomach pain is also very mild. She came back from hospital 2 days back. from today onwards, whatever she eats and drinks, she vomits it. Her stomach got swollen and that doctor told us that there is some intestine infection due to which her stomach is filled with water. i think it is a problem of gastritis. Can you help me in finding out the exact problem and the cure?

Thanks and Regards,
