She recently had unprotected sex. She DOESN'T want to get pregnant. Any tips on avoiding getting pregnant? How to know? Did NOT take Plan B pill.

Sure, with willpower: It's great that a teen does not want to get pregnant. Because the whole point of sex (in nature) is to make babies, the way to not get pregnant is to not have sex. So, she must use her brain and willpower, to promise herself that she won't have sex again until... probably after the wedding. For yesterday's problem, she must tell her doctor how many days after sex it is, so her Dr. can advise her. ...Read more

If a girl had sex 1 day before her mensuration cycle and she had i pill within 2 hours how she will come to know she is not pregnant?

In due time...: If i may ask your question another way: can a woman become pregnant under these circumstances?--the short answer is yes. Birth control pills, while generally effective, are not perfect protection from pregnancy. And, yes, women have become pregnant by having sex during their menstruation. So, in this above scenario, the only way to know if she is pregnant is to do a pregnancy test a few days later. ...Read more

Can a girl get pregnant if she get her period a day after she had sex.. Please respond ?

Unlikely. : If it is really her monthly period, and not another type of vaginal bleeding such as what can sometimes happen after sex, it is highly unlikely that a pregnancy would result. That being said, it sounds like there may be a need for a more reliable contraceptive method. The "rhythm method" is notoriously unreliable, and should not be counted on to prevent pregnancy. ...Read more

Can i give my wife a contraceptive pill before sex and a plan-b after sex to be sure she won't get pregnant 100%?Is it safe for her to get both pills

Redundant: If she is taking her contraceptive pills daily, her ovulation should be suppressed. There is a failure rate, but Plan B works by the same method. If you are looking for a back-up method i suggest an intra-uterine device, condoms, or spermacide. ...Read more
