Hello doctor,

My fiancee and I had unprotected sex last week, and she took an I-pill within six hours of the intercourse. She got withdrawal bleeding or spotting today. Is there any chance of her getting pregnant? I was just worried. Please respond as soon as possible.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through your question and understood the concerns.

  • I-pill when taken within 24 hours of unprotected intercourse, prevents pregnancy in 95 to 98 % cases. She is having withdrawal bleeding due to the hormonal effect of the pill. There is nothing to worry.

Hope you found the answer helpful. Regards.
