Hi doctor,

I am 28 years old and had unprotected sex with my husband a few hours back. I am a lactating mother and I do not want to get pregnant under any circumstances. Kindly suggest a medicine which is most effective in this situation to avoid pregnancy without affecting breastfeeding and my five month old baby.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • The emergency contraceptive pill is not a good idea. You can use Copper-T, a spermicidal jelly.

Thank you doctor,

Will it be painful? By the time, I will be able to purchase the medicine and it will be 9 hours after intercourse. Will it be effective?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • Copper-T insertion is better option in your case. It will be a slight painful procedure, but you can have painkillers.
  • Yes, you can have after 9 hours. No problem.
