According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

What can prevent pregnancy after this mishap? : I had unprotected sex and used a plan B pill. Though ovulation was set for the day after I took it.

What can prevent pregnancy after this mishap? : I had unprotected sex and used a plan B pill. Though ovulation was set for the day after I took it.

Plan B is designed: To work in a pinch when the risk of conception is good. It sounds like you had unprotected intercourse within 2 days of suspected ovulation date, which is within the danger window. Monitor your hormonal response in the next 2 weeks, as you should have some bleeding associated with the Plan B if it was successful. If no bleeding after 2 weeks, check 2 pregnancy tests 1 week apart. ...Read more

If I had unprotected sex during ovulation, how effective will emergency contraceptive taken within 52 hours be to prevent pregnancy?

About 90%: However studies have shown "Plan B" is less effective in women over 165#, and in women above that weight. See your OB-GYN if you have concerns, and always use a condom if you are sexually active! ...Read more

Pull-out=bad method: Unfortunately, your question is cut off at the end. It is very important, however, to address the ineffectiveness of the"pull-out"method, which involves stopping sex before ejaculation occurs. In addition to the possibility of withdrawing too late, sperm can be found in the lubricating fluid preceding ejaculation. The pull-out method is not birth control.Unless pregnancy is desired, condoms are needed. ...Read more

I missed 2 birth control pills back to back right before ovulation and had unprotected sex and got sperm in. Chances of pregnancy?

I missed 2 birth control pills back to back right before ovulation and had unprotected sex and got sperm in. Chances of pregnancy?

Significant chances: Between the timing in your cycle and the missed pills, there is certainly a chance of pregnancy. You should take a pregnancy test, at home or in your local medical facility. A urine test typically can be positive after a week (since the unprotected sex) and a blood pregnancy test can be positive after 3 days. It would be wise to abstain from sex until you know your pregnancy status for sure. ...Read more

I had unprotected sex two days after ovulation, since am breast feeding I didn't take any after pills, how can I prevent possibilities of pregnancy?

Nothing: There is nothing you can do a this point to prevent the pregnancy. There are contraceptive methods breastfeeding moms can utilize, but it is too late for that with this incident. How do you know you were ovulating, as this is usually quite irregular during nursing? The only way to guarantee no pregnancy would have been abstaining around ovulation. Now you just have to wait and see... ...Read more

Pls am due for my period today 13th sept 2015 but is not yet out. I had an unprotected sex on 8/9 Sept 2015. Pls suggest pills to prevent pregnacy?

4 days out...: First, unless a woman is trying to have a baby, she must not have sex without a reliable form of contraception. Secondly, if she has sex, she should take an emergency contraceptive pill right away. It's known as a "morning-after" pill, but really should be a "minute-after" pill. At 4-days out, she can call her doctor now for an Ella (ulipristal acetate) pill; or ask about an IUD to prevent this and future pregnancies. ...Read more

Pregnancy possible: If not interested in pregnancy, you should use proper contraception every time. Timing has a high failure rate. There is no reason why you won't ovulate on the 24th, 25th, 26th, or 27th. ...Read more

I had unprotected sex about six days ago and I was ovulating and I am not on birth control and my nipples are really sensitive and they hurt & nausous?

Pregnant is possible: But is is doubtful your symptoms this early are from pregnancy related. This seems to be just too soon. You are not even late on your period yet. When you are a week or two late on your period, then do a pregnancy test to check. If it is negative wait another week and then check it again. ...Read more

Well, we never say: That you are not pregnant, . Its monday so there hasn't been much time for you to get pregnant. You may consider emergency oral contraception or Plan B to make sure that you aren't but its not a good idea to just stop your pill and have sex. Good luck. ...Read more

Had unprotected sex yesterday. My last per was on 1/29. If I take Plan B the next day, is that considered early & will it prevent pregnancy?

Had unprotected sex yesterday. My last per was on 1/29. If I take Plan B the next day, is that considered early & will it prevent pregnancy?

Plab B and pregnancy: Morning after pills, such as plan b, have their maximum effect if taken within 72 hours after intercourse. There is moderate effectiveness if taken within 120 hours after intercourse. Your last period being 3 days ago, indicates a low risk for pregnancy. Using Plan B early also assures a minimal risk of pregnancy. ...Read more

I had unprotected sex 3 days ago. This is day 4 and I'm seeing a doctor, will this help prevent pregnancy?

I had unprotected sex 3 days ago. This is day 4 and I'm seeing a doctor, will this help prevent pregnancy?

Yes. Time is vital.: On Day 4, there is no time to waste. If pregnancy is possible, a primary care doctor can prescribe Ella, (ulipristal acetate) which will still work on Days 4-5. Plan B may not work as well as Ella, (ulipristal acetate) on Days 4-5. Another good plan is an IUD, which can be placed by an Ob-Gyn doctor. An IUD prevents pregnancy and starts working now (plus avoids the need for future Plan B or Ella), and can be removed when no longer wanted. ...Read more

Had unprotected sex on Sunday &took a morning (Postinor-2)I had unprotected sex on Monday would it prevent pregnancy or do Ineed to take another pill?

Need to take...: Take a break from having sex. At least until a reliable form of birth control is begun and effective. That being said, Sunday's emergency contraceptive pill should still work on Monday. One can also ask her Ob-Gyn about putting in an IUD, which works as emergency contraception and continues to work for several years. A urine pregnancy test should be done in 3 weeks to confirm nonpregnancy. ...Read more

No: There are no safe and reliable home remedies to prevent pregnancy after intercourse.
