I took one I-pill yesterday morning at 11 AM and then had an unprotected sex at 11 PM. Do I need to take another pill? What is the side effect of consuming I-pill twice? What is a regular birth control?

Thank you doctor,
Did you mean that there is no need to take pill again? Can you suggest the name of the regular birth control pill? How to use these kind of pills? We always use condom, but many time condom has been broken or leaking. While using regular birth control pill, is there a need to use a condom?
Welcome back to icliniq.com.
Yes, no need to take again.
If a condom is being used regularly, then in my opinion, no need to take regular pills. Keep I-pill for emergency situations.
OCPs are available in many brands. A gynecological consultation is advised prior to starting OCPs.
The pills should be taken from the 5th day of menstrual cycle till periods occur, which is for about 21 days. Then again start with 5th day of the next cycle.
These also have some associated side effects. If you are not married and have no children, then for some time avoid OCPs.
If you like to take OCPs, then no need to use a condom.
