Unlikely: The morning after pill is a high dose hormone designed to disrupt the lining of the uterus to make it less hospitable for implantation by the embryo. Since it alters things hormonal, your period will be a bit different as a result. Very common. ...Read more

Will douching after sex prevent pregnancy?

Will douching after sex prevent pregnancy?

No: It takes between 60 and 90 seconds for the sperm to travel from the vagina through the cervix into the uterus and out of the fallopian tubes to reach your eggs.

Does washing out the vagina after sex prevent pregnancy?

Does washing out the vagina after sex prevent pregnancy?

I wouldn't recommend: While in theory it could help, but I would never encourage any women to utilize this as a form of birth control. I would encourage you to stick with more tried and true methods of abstinence, birth control pills, diaphragms, cervical caps, IUDs, condoms/spermicide. I would strongly encourage you to consider some form of barrier to help prevent STDs too, as 'the pill' doesn't prevent STDs ! ...Read more

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
