I am 27 year old married woman.I had my period on 13th February 2010.
Me and my husband had unprotected sex on 1st March 2010 and we are not sure if he ejaculated inside or there were traces of pre-come on his organ.We dont want a baby at this point in time.
1) What are the chances of Me getting pregnant?
2) What are the ways to nullify the chances of pregnancy?
3) Is opting for i-pill a safe bet?

Thanks in advance for help....Will be waiting for your response.

I can understand your confusion due to the change of events. It is seen that pregnancy only occurs if intercourse occurs within the 6 days prior to and including ovulation. The best timing of intercourse in order to conceive is day 10, 12, 14 and 16 (in case of late ovulation) of a 28 day cycle.Since you had intercourse on 1st March which was unprotected and 1st March being your 17th day of the menstrual cycle( considering you had regular periods prior to that), so chances of pregnancy are very less.

Regarding post coital pills, ideally the first pill should be taken within 72 hours of intercourse but it can be taken for 5 days also but the efficacy is reduced in that case. So you can take the pill after consulting your doctor.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations, and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
