Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I had my last period a month back. I had unprotected sex six days later. I did not take any pills also. Now, my period is late by 16 days. Last week when we had sex, I took a pill. Is there any chance for pregnancy?

Answered by Dr. Meeta Bansal

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

As per your query, you had periods a month back. But six days later, in which month did you have unprotected intercourse, last month or this one? Also, when did you take the pill? Please specify for further guidance.

Patient's Query

Thank you doctor,

I had unprotected sex a month back. This month also we had sex, but I took pill exactly three to four days later.

Answered by Dr. Meeta Bansal

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Regarding intercourse in last month, there is no chance of pregnancy. Also, if you took the pill within 72 hrs of unprotected intercourse this month, then there is mostly no chance of pregnancy. Delay is because of the pill.

Patient's Query

Thank you doctor,

So, there is nothing to worry, right?

Yes, no worries at all.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
