I had sex on the beginning of this month and both times my boyfriend didnt pull out. I took a action pill after two days. but within an hour and a half I threw up. I had eaten food before taking the pill. After I threw up , I didnt take another pill. According to my calendar , I ovulated during the mid of this month. I just want to know if its possible that I can be pregnant. My period is due on the end of this month. Im nervous. Im uncertain whether the pill absorbed or not because I threw up. Its been exactly 7 days since we had sex so it would be too early to take a test?


hi dear

good morning

I fully understand your concern and will surely help you. see for getting pregnant the sperms have to be ejaculated inside the vagina of the female. these sperms are then required to fertilise an egg which then gets implanted in uterus of the female. now in your case although you have taken the pill after two days of having sex. but your first intercourse was on the beginning of this month. see the effectiveness of the pill reduces in accordance to the time it is taken post intercourse.

since you threw up post taking the pill after one and a half hour there is a possibility of pregnancy my request is pls undertake a urine pregnancy test with first urine of the day for accurate result. don't drink too much fluid prior to your test. adhere to all guidelines written on package of pregnancy test kit. based upon the outcome of the pregnancy test we can decide upon further management of your menstrual health or Pregnancy. don't worry I am always there for you. feel free to ask any questions or to share any additional information. God bless.
