User Profile
Hi. i am a 35 yr old man. my girl and i did not have an intercourse but based on doubts of slight fiddling or contact, she took an i-pill within 24 hours. she had got her period on 19th April and after this incident, she got bleeding on 26th April once again which lasted 4 days and was different in terms of color and smell than her usual cycle.

She had pain in severe pain in her lower abdomen and back, diahorea, gastric trouble for many days. Doctor gave a 5 day course of medicine including Flagyl tab and Pan D. Also, got an internal Ultrasound done, the report came out clear. Pain did not persist at all. Today, 2 days after the medicine course got over, she suddenly has a lot of lower abdomen pain as well as backache. IS SHE PREGNANT? Doctor has asked to do tests of urine and BHCP for checking pregnancy in tube. Please advise. We are really tensed.

Birth Control Answer A43540
Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum.
If she has taken emergency contraception within 48 hours of intercourse it should help in preventing pregnancy (provided you were not sexually active after she took the ECP). The bleeding that she experienced within few days of taking ECP could have been the withdrawal bleeding (that usually occurs within 5-7 days of taking ECP). Wait and watch for her periods that may be delayed due to ECP use (due to high hormonal content of the ECP disrupting the normal hormonal pattern). Look out for development of any new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. She should visit her doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance if she does not get her periods within 10 days of expected period dates, or if she gets abnormal bleeding. If pregnancy gets ruled out and if you are not ready for pregnancy, but intend to remain sexually active, you should consider getting her started on suitable regular birth control measures to be protected (after her periods). She should be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact if you are not ready for pregnancy.
Take care.
