Hi doctor,

My fiancee was undergoing her menstrual cycle between 30th of last month till the third of this month. We had an unprotected intercourse during that time, and she did not take any contraceptives. Two weeks later, on the 16th of this month, we had unprotected sex again. This time she took an I-pill. We again had an unprotected intercourse between 23rd to 24th of this month. Due to fear, she had another I-pill on 24th of this month. I request you to address the following queries: 1. Was it necessary for her to take an I-pill on 24th of this month despite taking it on 17th of the same month? 2. Do you advise that she should have received an I-pill post intercourse on the third of this month when she just finished her menstrual cycle? 3. She experienced light spotting on the 23rd of this month. Could these be the symptoms of the upcoming menstrual cycle (due by 30th of this month)? We will appreciate your answers. Thank you.

  • First of all, it was not required to take an I-pill on third of this month.
  • In the next two times, it was required, which she had taken. Bleeding or spotting is because of the I-pill that she took first. But, her periods may be disturbed as she has taken two I-pills in a month, which is not recommended.

Thank you doctor,

She is complaining about some sensation in her vaginal part on the 25th of this month. What could be the reason for it? What are the healthier implant options available for either me or her to avoid taking the contraceptives? As an unprotected intercourse is somewhat regular between us. Regards.

  • The pain can be an effect of the intercourse. If it does not resolve in some time, then she should get herself examined by the gynecologist.
  • For a regular contraception, you have so many choices which are safe and efficient. You can consult a nearby gynecologist for that.
