Q. Is a pregnancy test required after taking Niel 72?
Although Niel 72 significantly reduces your chances of pregnancy, if your periods are delayed by more than a week, a pregnancy test is recommended. However, if you decide on continuing the pregnancy, you may do so as Niel 72 does not work if pregnancy has already been established. Niel 72 does not cause harm to the foetus.
Q. Can Niel 72 be taken for regular birth control?
No. Niel 72 is not indicated for regular birth control. It is used only as an emergency measure after unprotected sex or contraceptive failure.
Q. How often can I use Niel 72?

Q. Can Niel 72 protect against Sexually Transmitted Disease (STDs) and HIV / AIDS?
No. Niel 72 does not offer any protection from HIV / AIDS or other Sexually Transmitted Disease (STDs). You can use condoms to protect yourself from STDs and HIV / AIDS.
Q. What is the difference between 'emergency contraceptive pill' and 'abortion pill'?
Pregnancy starts once the fertilized egg gets attached to the lining of the uterus (womb). Abortion pills contain medicine, which hinders the development of a pregnancy after it has occurred and also alters the character of the womb lining in a way that the fertilized egg gets detached, hence causing abortion. On the other hand, emergency contraceptive pills like Niel 72 contain female hormones which delay the release of egg or prevent movement of sperm towards the egg. This prevents fertilization and hence pregnancy. Niel 72 does not have any effect on a fertilized egg and hence does not cause abortion.
Q. Is Niel 72 effective if frequent acts of intercourse have occurred in a short duration of time?
Yes. Niel 72 is effective if you have had several acts of intercourse in a short span of time. However, it is important that these acts have occurred within 72 hours before taking Niel 72. Also, since there is a chance of unintended pregnancy after frequent acts of unprotected sex in the same cycle, it is advisable to use a barrier contraceptive method (e.g. condom) until the next period even after using Niel 72.
