Hi doctor,

I had an I-pill after unprotected sex. We have had unprotected sex again after 72 hours of I-pill intake. Do I need to take second I-pill? Kindly suggest.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • No, there is no requirement of repeating the I-pill till 72 hours to 120 hours after the first pill intake. The first pill shall cover up.
  • You may derange the hormonal balance if you take the second pill now.

Thank you doctor,

What is barrier contraception?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • Barrier contraception means the use of condoms. Try condom if you get intimate again before your withdrawal bleeding starts.
