Hi doctor,

I am 26 years old. Yesterday I had sex with my husband, but unfortunately precaution was broken. I do not want to get pregnant. What should I do? Please guide me.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • You may take one i-pill tablet, which is an emergency contraceptive.
  • Take it within 72 hours of intercourse and this shall help to prevent pregnancy. You would get a withdrawal bleed in next five to seven days.

Hi doctor,

I am not sure whether sperm entered vagina or not. In that case too should I take i-pill? Is it safe?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • If there was an unprotected intercourse there are chances that precum may have entered and that also has sperms. So, it is better to take i-pill.
