Hi,

Yes, you can get pregnant even with one ovary. You need to take emergency contraceptive pills within 72 hours of unprotected sex. You can also prevent pregnancy by IUD insertion within 5 days of unprotected sex. However it is better if you use any regular contraceptive method to prevent pregnancy in future.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi,

You had sex on 14th day of periods which could be ovulation time in a 28 day cycle. A emergency pill can avoid pregnancy when consumed within 72 hours of sex. You can take the pill within this limit.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
