Hello doctor,

My last period was 30 days back. This month I started taking the Regestrone tablet from last week. Yesterday, I got physical, but we separated before my husband's pre cum. After that, I took the Regestrone tablet again as we had some holy rituals at home. Can I be pregnant? What are the chances? I do not want to get pregnant. Please help me with this situation.



Welcome to

I understand your concern.

Yes, you may get pregnant as Regestrone (Norethisterone) is not a contraceptive pill. Therefore, you should stop taking Regestrone tablets and take an emergency contraceptive pill like i-Pill (Levonorgestrel) within 72 hrs of sexual intercourse to avoid unplanned pregnancy.

Thank you.

Thank you doctor,

There was no sexual intercourse as we got separated at the time of his pre-cum.



Welcome back to

I understand your concern.

If you are sure, then you should not be worried about pregnancy. I would suggest you to stop Regestrone tablets and wait for the withdrawal bleed.
