ECT Pill

I wasn't sure which category to post this question under, but okay... here's the thing... my boyfriend went inside of me twice yesterday. I don't know why we chose to do this. We both agree that it was very stupid... but now I'm scared of getting pregnant. I started my period later that day, after we had s_x. So does that mean I could possibly have still been ovulating when he c_mmed inside of me? He told me about the ECT pill, and how he thinks I should go to the doctor today or tomorrow and take it, just in case. Has anyone taken this before? Should I take it? I am also against abortion and I don't know if this is similar to that or not. I don't want to kill a baby. Can anyone help me?

If your cycle is regular, any egg produced would have been long gone by the time your period started. If you still want to take the ECT, you need to see a doctor soon because it's effective only up to 72 hours after the event. What it does is causes the lining of the uterus to flake off, just as with a normal period. I would not consider this as an abortion because at this stage an egg would not have implanted yet and is still considered a ma__s of cells.

so do you think i should even take it then? do you think i could possibly get pregnant because of this? i mean... if there was no egg, then is it even worth it? i do have an appointment for tomorrow morning at 8am. what it is, is they are going to give me information and explain everything, and then they are supposed to give me the pills.

Keep your appointment and see what they say. It's unlikely you'd be pregnant, but explain your situation to the doctor and s/he will tell you whether you really need to take the ECT or not.

I want to agree with Audrey. I'm not real familiar w/that pill, but from what I have read it isn't the so-called "abortion pill", there isn't anything to abort at that point. It is just a preventative method, just like any other protection. And actually, I don't know how much truth there is to this, but I have been told that certain types of birth control pills actually still allow the egg to be fertilized, but won't allow it to implant. So that's not any different. It's a preventative measure, not abortion.
