Ob-Gyn questions? Ask a gynecologist online.
Hi, I am privileged you have allowed me to help you improve your health. There are a few preliminary questions I need you to answer in order to give you the best advice.
1. Was an ovulation test used to determine the day of ovulation? If not then how did she determine it?
2. Was she given the Yasmin as a birth control pill for contraception? or for emergency contraception?
3. What is the first day of her last menstrual period (LMP)?4. Do you have periods every month, i.e. 28-30 days? If not what is your menstrual cycle length?
How many of the Yasmin pills were you given by the physician? How did the doctor instruct you to take them?
I took them from the pharmacy and did not see a doctor, this is why i am asking you for the instructions to take and dosages as well as side effects
Take 4 pills at once, then repeat 4 pills in 12 hours. Be advised that if the period does not start within 2 weeks then a pregnancy blood test should be done, as the pregnancy may not have been prevented. When taking heavy dose birth control pills (BCPs) a woman can experience nausea & possibly vomiting. If the pills are vomited then it is not recommended to repeat the dose at this point because similar side effect can occur.
You should know that if the egg has already been fertilized and the hormones do not cauase a period then the fetus may be effected by the increase estrogen dose.
Let me know if you have any further questions regarding this question as my goal is to make sure you are completely satisfied with your answer.
While you had intercourse, despite not having ejaculated inside of her, the precum also contains sperm so there is still risk of pregnancy. however since it has been less then 24 hours in taking the emergency contraception (EC) then there is an excellent chance that the EC will work.
I would recommend you avoid having sex on the day of ovulation. This is strongly recommended for couples who are trying to actively conceive.
Please be sure to rate me so I will get compensated for my time and feel free to ask for me for your next health question
Have a great day!
