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'.

Hi, my partner has Kleinfelters syndrome, and has had infertility tests to be told that he can't have children. Despite this, i still take the contreceptive pill, and i was wondering if you think there is a lot of risk if I stop taking the pill that I could become pregnant? Even though he has been told he cant have children, im worried that there could be a chance. I hate taking the pill because it makes me feel very sluggish, and i have put on weight and it has stopped my period entirely for the 6 months that i have been taking it. I am also doing a degree, and dont want to get pregnant! Not sure what to do!

Hi, doctor. My question is about unprotected sex during the use of birth control. I started both my period and birth control on Sunday, March 23rd and had unprotected sex on April 19th. My periods are irregular and that was my main reasoning for going on birth control. I am at the beginning of my 4th week of contraceptives and have not gotten my period yet. What is the likely hood that having had unprotected sex on the 19th could result in pregnancy? I did not take emergency contraceptive immediately following.
