Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I had sex with my fiancee a month back. I gave her Unwanted 72 in the 48 to 72 hours bracket. She had her period ten days back. Today she is experiencing some lactation and also suffering from typhoid. Is she pregnant? What to do? Kindly help.

Thank you.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

As she had a withdrawal bleed, so chances of pregnancy are minimal. The lactation could be due to high prolactin levels due to hyperprolactinemia which needs to be investigated with serum prolactin levels. However, the best way to rule out pregnancy if you are still anxious is to get a serum beta hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) test. She is surely not pregnant if the hCG levels are less than 5 mIU/mL. Lactation is not a sign of pregnancy. During this cycle, menstruation can be delayed as she suffers from typhoid, so stay apprised.

Thank you.
