Hi doctor,

I had unprotected sex on the third day of my periods while I was still bleeding. Within an hour I took an emergency contraceptive pill as well. Is it safe or will I be a pregnant? Please explain me.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • It is very unlikely to get pregnant while on period.
  • There is no need of emergency contraceptive pill. But, now that 1% chance is also out of the question.
  • Do not worry, you are safe. But there is a possibility that you might get irregular periods for the next two to three months, because of the pill.
  • I would not suggest you to take these pills frequently as later on they may cause severe hormonal disturbance and eventually can hamper fertility.
