Hello doctor,

I had unprotected intercourse a few days back, and my wife took ipill after 24 hours. We again had unprotected intercourse 7 hours after she took her ipill. Does she need to take another ipill, or the first will work?

Please tell me the side effects of the regular contraceptive pills and suggest the best one.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

Your wife need not take another ipill. Please remember it is not safe to use ipill in the manner that you have been doing. It is best to get on regular contraception, and condoms are quite effective in contraception if you have apprehensions towards using the pills.

If your wife does not want to use pills, then I could suggest Yasmin or Yaz. It has to be taken according to the instructions given on the back of the pack, starting from the second day of the period. It has little to no side effects as compared to other contraceptive pills.
