Is pregnancy possible despite taking Unwanted 72?

i accidentally entered my penis under my girlfriends libia majora. i did not ejacuate. knowing that semen contains sperms i am worried. I advised her to take unwanted72 pill same day. then i read that they do not work after ovulation. how can i know will it work or not. or does it not depend on the ovulation time? if she gets pregnant. when and how to go for abortion?

Hallow Dear,

You had just entered the penis between the labia majora. This is sufficient for depositing sperms in the vagina. Before ejaculation, preseminal or pre-ejaculatory secretions (precum)are released unknowingly. Precum does contain some sperms which can cause pregnancy.

However, she has taken Unwanted 72 within 24 hours of this incidence. So she is protected from the pregnancy. If the ovulation had taken place previously, the egg has life of only 24 hours. So you need not worry.

These pills may delay the menses by about a week or less. So delayed menses should not put stress on you.

Still if you are sceptic about the possibility of pregnancy, you may perform pregnancy test on the urine about a week after the missed period. Alternatively, you may get Beta hCG test done on her blood 10 days after this incidence.

I hope this helps you.
