Hello Mr Jayavardhan, Polycystic ovaries can cause some problems while getting pregnant. While her current medication is proper and can help in conception, i would advice that she also takes homeopathic medicines along with them. Homeopathic medicines will promote ovulation and boost the chances of pregnancy. If you can provide some more details about her condition, i will be able to conclude one remedy which will help her a lot.

Hii doctor, Is there any side effects if a girl take unwanted 72 and she is not pregnant?

Hii doctor,
Is there any side effects if a girl take unwanted 72 and she is not pregnant?
Hello- Yes there is. Pills like Unwanted 72 induce strong uterine contraction to abort the implantation after sex. If the girl took the pill without being pregnant she may face heavy vaginal bleeding with discomfort before or during her period dates.

Hello, the best way to rule out pregnancy at present would be to get a serum beta hcg test now. If the hcg levels are more than 5ng/dl, then she is pregnant for sure, however it seems that you're in your safe period so chances are minimal.

Hi lybrate user, hiccups is not sign of the pregnancy. But you had sex in unsafe period so possibility of getting pregnant can't be ruled out if she misses a period let her do urine pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy.

Hello You should try having intercourse more frequently in the fertile period that is 11th to 18th day of her cycle. If still you are not able to conceive after one year of unprotected intercourse then you should visit a gynaecologist and get investigations done.

Till you are fully breastfeeding, the body provides natural contraception, since egg release is prevented. As the number of feeds and quantity of milk reduces after 6th month, a chance ovulation may escape, and result in pregnancy. So if you haven't got your cycles yet, it may be safe. After 4th month start using a regular pill.

Gynaecologist,
How to prevent pregnancy by natural methods?
Hello, These are the facts you have to know to solve your query. 1. Important fact is to avoid relation in the unsafe period. This unsafe period is to be calculated from menstrual details of last six month. If you provide me this details will help you out. 2. Unsafe period is the period when the egg comes out of ovary and waits for sperms in the Fallopian tube. So by avoiding relations in this period you will avoid pregnancy. Or if you are having relation you have to use condoms. 3. Naturally there are body signs which will tell you whether ovulation has occurred. These are increase in body temperature, thinning of cervical mucous both which you can experience mid cycle. In this days you have to avoid relations. 4. Provide me the first day of your periods of last six months and will give you the details of your unsafe period. So you have to avoid relation in this period. Hope this was helpful to you. Thanks.

Safety of Emergency Contraception

Certification in Robotic surgery in Gynecology, MRCOG (LONDON), Fellowship in Gyn Endoscopy, MD - Gynaecologist & Obstetrician, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Safety of Emergency Contraception

Emergency is helpful in preventing pregnancies post unprotected sexual activity. It can be used in case of contraceptive failure, in case of sexual assault, incorrect use of contraceptives and unprotected sex.

Emergency contraception can be done by three methods. These are emergency contraceptive pills, combined oral contraceptive pills and copper intrauterine devices.

The copper IUD is considered to be one of the most effective forms of emergency contraception, when it is inserted within 5 days of unprotected sexual activity.

However, the emergency contraceptive pill regimen as per WHO is:

  • 1 dose of levonorgestrel 1.5 mg, or 1 dose of ulipristal 30 mg, taken within 5 days (120 hours) of unprotected intercourse

  • The Yuzpe regimen which consists of 2 doses of combined oral contraceptive pills

What is Emergency Contraception?

Emergency contraception is usually referred to as the contraception which is used to prevent a pregnancy within the first 5 days after an unprotected sexual activity. It is used post failures of contraception, coerced unprotected sex, rape or misuse of contraception.

Emergency contraception is only effective in the first few days after an intercourse and before the egg has released from the ovary, and before there is fertilization between the egg and the sperm. The emergency contraception can do no harm to an interrupted pregnancy and a developing embryo.

Who needs emergency contraception?

Any girl or woman who is at her reproductive age might need an emergency contraception in case of an unprotected sexual intercourse.

Uses:

  1. Breakage, slippage or displacement of barrier methods
  2. Three or more missed OCPills for more than 12 hours
  3. Missed Mini pill for more than 3 hours
  4. Missed Desoestrel pills for more than 12 hours
  5. DMPA injections taken more than 2 weeks late
  6. Miscalculated dates of last period and present ovulation side effects

These are meant only for emergency contraception and NOT AS A REGULAR CONTRACEPTIVE. It involves pumping of a hormone inside your body at levels which are 5 times higher than normal. hence excessive and unnecessary use may cause irregularity in the period cycles and an adverse effect on the menstrual health over a period of time. Ideally it should be taken under guided medical supervision.

In what situations should emergency contraception be used?

Emergency contraception can be used after a sexual intercourse. These include:

  • In case of no use of contraceptives

  • If it is a case of rape or coerced sex, where the woman was not protected

  • When there is a contraceptive failure, like

    • breakage

    • incorrect use or slippage

    • OCPILLS,

    • mini pills

    • DMPA

  • 3 or more missed combined oral contraceptives, progestogen-only pill (minipill) taken more than 3 hours late, desogestrel-containing pill 12 hours or more, norethisterone enanthate (NET-EN) progestogen-only injection taken more than 2 weeks late

  • Delay in placing or dislodgement or early removal of the skin patch or the hormonal ring

  • Breaking, dislodgement, tearing or early removal of cervical cap or diaphragm

  • Failure of withdrawal that is ejaculation the external genitalia or vagina

  • The spermicide tablet failure

  • Miscalculating the periods, failure from using a barrier on the fertile days

  • Expulsion of an intrauterine contraceptive device (IUD)

Methods of Emergency Contraception:

There are three emergency contraception methods:

  1. Copper-bearing intrauterine devices (IUDs)

  2. Emergency contraception pills (ECPs)

  3. Combined oral contraceptive pills or the Yuzpe method
