Hi doctor,

I had unprotected sex and took I-pill within 8 hrs. I am regular with 28 to 30 day cycle. I do not know about my fertility. What are the chances for my pregnancy? We used only withdrawal method.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • You said that you had unprotected intercourse and within eight hours you took I-pill. So, the chances of you getting pregnant are very less, as I-pill prevents 50% to 80% chance of getting pregnant.
  • If your periods do not start on time, then this could be either due to the side effect of I-pill or could be pregnant. So, do follow up with a pregnancy test result in case this happens.
