Had unprotected sex

Hi. My friend had unprotected sex and took one Ipill immediately after few hours. She said she had cleared her cycles 6 days prior the intercourse. Now she is panicking about getting pregnant. Should she take another dose? Should I take her to doc for checkup? Any help/advice?

Hello, if she has taken I pills with in 72 hours of intercourse need not to take another one .But you should remember failure rate is 1% .So if she misses next period by chance then you should take her to hospital ,now don't worry. Too many progesterone pills are not good for health . It leads to harmonal imbalance and periods get delayed.
