Patient's Query

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.

Answered by Dr. Deepti Verma

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.

Patient's Query

Thank you doctor,

Is stomach pain normal in this situation? Also, after withdrawal bleeding, is there any chance of pregnancy?

Answered by Dr. Deepti Verma

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com

Yes, slight pain in abdomen is possible after taking I-pill.The chances of pregnancy are almost nil after withdrawal bleeding.

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