Ob-Gyn questions? Ask a gynecologist online.
My wife and I were a bit worried about the emergency pill because we read that there are 2 effect that might cause.
1- Prevent ovulation
2- Prevent the implantation of the ovule, where some people think that is a "chemical" abortion.
We are religious and we wanted to be sure that the emergency pill we took on the 7th day of her cycle did prevent the ovulation and not the implantation.
The doctor said that was very unlikely to be ovulating the 7th day of the period, but just to be sure she took an ovulating test (negative) and today went to the doctor for a transvaginal ultrasound (echography) and the doctor said that the endometrium was too thin and the follicles were very small so that she had not ovulated yet. (can you confirm is this is correct?)
So, if there is no ovulation yet, where does that blood we had just after the ultrasound came from? I read that it is a potencial side effect of the emergency pill, but if there is no ovule, where that blood came from? is from that thin endometrium? If so, she wont ovulate and this is her "period" this month?
Hope you can answer me both questions to be calm and sure
Thanks for the clarification.
So we should be sure that when she took the emergency pill she was not yet ovulating? that is very important for us so we are not guilty about this.
Also, this bleed from the endometrium that fall off has nothing to do with ovulation? is just because of the rise in hormones?
Thanks a lot!
Thanks a lot.
So when the doctor today in the echography saw a thin endometrium some part of that thin endometrium is what is bleeding now?
Thanks a lot doc.
Just to clarify.
When you said "Yes, on both counts - she was not ovulating when she took the emergency pill and the bleed is from the endometrium and has nothing to do with ovulation." this means that when she took the emergency pill was not ovulating nor ovulated the few days before since her cycle started?
