I-pill has its effect when we have sex 5 days after taking it.Can I be pregnant ?

I-pill has its effect when we have sex 5 days 'after' taking it? My last periods started on 16 Nov and lasted for about 5 days. I had unprotected sex on 28 Nov, so within 24 hours, I took I-pill. Then again on 3 Dec, I had a partial insertion. Chances of sperm transfer is less. Can I be pregnant? or the I-pill has its effect when we have sex 5 days 'after' taking it?

I pill is emergency contraceptive pill to be taken within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse. It should not be used for 'everyday emergancy'.

About a year ago, I started seeing white spots on my legs...they have multiplied rapidly. The dermatologist diagnosed it as Vitiligo. I am currently applying Pigmento ointment (charak). I was sent Vitiligo 30 sublingual pills from Biogetica, as well as Pigmento Tablets. I am a breast cancer survivor (2), and have had reconstruction. I am 68, and 5 4 tall...weigh 154 lbs. I am really scared to ingest the pills for fear that it will do liver damage. One of the pills contain Arsen Sulph . How harmful is this? Please advise. Thank you. Juliet

Usually my period last about 6or 7 days this last time it was about 4 to 5 pasty, dark brown, and some days wouldn t bleed at all then spot the next. I took a test (a cheap 99 cent store one) and it said negative. This month it s time for me to have my period again and I have no signs of it coming. No bloating, salt craving, mood swing, sharp pains...nothing. I m not pregnant right??
