Hi How accurate is the due date if someone get pregnant after she has taken the levonelle? Same person has the scan at 10 weeks and 6 days and the scan shows crown rump length well below the 3rd centile. Is it safe to go by this scan to calculate her expected date of delivery? Many thanks

Hello Doctor. My GF, was taking her first pill at 3:00 P.M after taking second dose of Nordette (white) at 3:00 A.M. After 4 hours she wants to vomit but she can t. But instead of vomiting she coughed and had a little blood. And I asked her if she feels pain in her abdominal and she said yes but it s just a bit. And when I ask her to stand and walk if she feels dizzy, she said a bit. But may I mention that before taking the second dose we were quite swimming for 1+ hours or so. She wants to rest because she feels tired (maybe after swimming) but she can t because if she will lie down she feels like she wants to vomit. Help please..

Hello Dr. Lundi,
My Name is Natha and I'am 20 years old. I Have been using contraceptive pills microgynon for more than 6months. I recently stopped with microgynon pills, mostly because of side effects such as acne. I decided to stop on the microgynon pills and was advised by my Gynee to start with Diane 35. When I got to the pharmacy they gave me krimson 35 instead, and said that they share the same components. Since I'am very much sexually active, and DON"T wish for having kids ANYTIME SOON I was wondering if:
1) Is it safe to have un-protected Sexual Intercourse?
2) How many days do I wait before having any sexual intercourse since I just started?
3) Since I started taking it on a Thursday, the last day of my period, will it function as a contraceptive pill?

I would very much appreciate if I could have your views and answers on that matter very soon.

Kind Regards,
N
