Partner is not always around. Having sex everyday for about 10days. What kind of pills should b taken to prevent pregnancy?

Birth control pills: There isn't much you can do at this point about your exposure over the past 10 days. You may have already conceived. Emergency Contraception (Ella (ulipristal acetate) or Plan B) is really only helpful within a few days after unprotected sex. In the future, I would recommend getting on birth control pills prior to having sex. Other options include: injections, implants, an IUD or condoms. ...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

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

Which medication can I use to prevent pregnancy past 3 days of unprotected sex after the periods?

Which medication can I use to prevent pregnancy past 3 days of unprotected sex after the periods?

On days 4-5?: If on days 4-5, there is no time to waste. If pregnancy is possible, a primary care doctor may prescribe Ella, (ulipristal) which should still work on days 4-5. Plan B may not work as well as Ella 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). Always plan ahead. ...Read more
