The Effectiveness Of Using Emergency Contraception When Accompanied By Hormonal Drugs?
Hello, I want to ask I have menstrual disorders so on the 24th I drank primolut but on the 25th I had sex and sperm came out inside, but 6 hours after that I drank pstinor, and at night I drank primolut again, will pregnancy happen? Given the primolut to thicken the uterine wall to be ready to catch the sperm to be fertilized, but I forgot to have sex but I have taken postinor, how? Is the postinor effective? Thank you
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The drugs you take contain the generic hormone progesterone and are intended to treat several conditions such as the growth of uterine tissue outside the uterus, irregular menstruation, and breast cancer. In low doses, this drug can also be used for contraception.
Then for emergency contraception that you convey, its use is indeed for certain conditions where partners have sexual intercourse that has the potential to be pregnant. As the name implies, this contraceptive should only be used during an emergency like in your case, and not for regular consumption like other contraceptives because it can cause disruption of the body's hormone balance.
To your question, there are actually no reports that specifically discuss cases like yours, and there are also no reports of interactions between the two drugs to assess which effect is stronger. Basically, if you have used emergency contraception as directed, you should not be pregnant. But you also need to know, that any type of contraception other than permanent contraception that involves surgery, still has the potential for pregnancy even though it is small, therefore, you should still do more tests in consultation with your obstetrician regarding your condition. So, hopefully it answers your question.
