Can you use Saran wrap with duct tape as an emergency condom?

No!: Saran wrap will tear too easily and is not reliable as pregnancy or std protection. It is also unsafe to encircle your penis with duct tape, as it is a sensitive area of the skin and you run the risk of cutting off circulation. Use store-bought condoms only. ...Read more

Why not BC Pills?: I am often the alternative and frank speaking doctor here. Your poor body. Why are you living like this? Having sex should not engender emergencies. Sex is to have fun, spirituality, intimacy, stress reduction. Planning to prevent pregnancy before it becomes an emergency is a much better and happier way to live. This is called birth control. There are very many different forms of birth control. ...Read more

Probably not...: If you take the emergency contraceptive pills within the first 24 hours after intercourse, they reduce your risk of pregnancy by up to 95%. If take before 72 hours, they reduce your risk by 88%. That is pretty good, though not perfect. A side effect of taking emergency contraception is frequently a delayed period. If you want to be sure, do a pregnancy test. Best wishes! ...Read more

Pregnancy test...: At this point, the only way to know for sure if you are or are not pregnant is to take a pregnancy test when you miss your period. The emergency contraception can affect the normal timing of the cycle so bleeding early or late doesn't necessarily mean pregnancy. By next week, most pregnancy tests would be able to detect the hormone of pregnancy and be reliable. ...Read more

If your period: is regular and this was within days of menses, pregnancy is quite unlikely. You can always take the 'emergency pill' it is safe and does not cause an abortion or damage a developing baby. you are at risk for sexually transmitted infections in the situation. Good job on using a condom though! ...Read more

Had sex with a condom on my fertile week but i took emergency pills 23 hours after,2 weeks later still no period and 2days late. Could the EC failed?

Had sex with a condom on my fertile week but i took emergency pills 23 hours after,2 weeks later still no period and 2days late. Could the EC failed?

Very unlikely: but remotely possible. Much more likely is that the progestin in the emergency contraception has altered your usual hormonal balance and delayed your period. Repeated use of emergency contraception is a bad idea. Perhaps you don't feel protected enough with condoms...please pursue more reliable contraception: implant/injection/pills. Best wishes:) ...Read more
