What do you suggest if I had unsafe sex twice in 9 yrs.?

Get in to the Doctor: You need to be tested for STDS. There are 12 common STDs. I would advise you to be up front and honest with your doctor about your risks and why you feel you need testing.

I just think, quite frankly, that you need to be able to know what the diseases are you have put yourself at risk ...Read more

My gf used 72hr ecp yesterday and today we had unsafe sex again, will that taken ecp works again?

Stop!: Stop having unprotected sex unless you want to be a father. The ECP she took "yesterday" will prevent her from ovulating at this time. Therefore, she is LESS likely to get pregnant from your repeated unsafe sex today. However, ECP pills are not 100% effective at preventing pregnancy. Keep having unprotected sex and you will eventually be a dad. Condoms also prevent STDs, so use them. ...Read more

Hi. After unsafe sex I had unwanted 72 within 3 hrs. Is there possibility of failure of the medicine.???

Yes: Emergency contraceptive pills work most of the time, but not all of the time. An IUD works (as emergency contraception) more reliably than taking pills. In any case, one should do a home urine pregnancy test 3 weeks after sex. As always, life can surprise you, so fertile couples having sex should be ready to raise that rare, surprise baby, if that happens. ...Read more

Pregnancy tests, even over-the-counter ones, are very accurate. Generally, if you conceived more than 14 days ago, the pregnancy test will be positive. Go buy one to be sure! ...Read more

If you want to get pregnant, start prenatal vitamins and see clinician asap given your age. ...Read more
