Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

How can I prevent pregnancy after intercourse? I am not sure whether the sperm went inside.

Kindly help.

Thank you.

Answered by Dr. Richa Agarwal

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through your history and understand your concerns. As you had unprotected sex and wanted to discontinue the pregnancy, you can take I-pill (Levonorgestrel) for the same after consulting your specialist doctor. You can take one tablet of I-pill 1.5 mg as early as possible (maximum within 72 hours). Only one tablet is required in your case, menstrual irregularities are the side effects of the pill.

Hope this helps.

Thank you.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
