Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

What are my chances of getting pregnant after taking the emergency pill within 24 hours of having sex?

Please guide.

Answered by Dr. Nadia Khan


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Your chances of getting pregnant after taking the morning pill are very low. But it also depends on what day of the menstrual cycle you had sex and how long is your cycle and was it the only episode of unprotected sex in this cycle. Your period might get delayed or you might experience spotting with morning pill.

Take care.
