I took an ECP on 7th September after having unprotected sex. I got my periods 7 days after I took the ECP. I had sex again on 17th September .I had protected sex with the use of a condom . Should I be worried about getting pregnant?

Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question.

As long as you use the condom properly, then it should do the job of preventing pregnancy.

Same thing with the emergency contraceptive pill. If you followed the instructions per the manufacturer's directions, you should be safe there as well.

Be well,
