On Sunday, July 18, I had sex with my boyfriend. At the very beginning, we didn't use a condom, but then for the rest of it we did. An hour later (at the most) I took the morning after pill (single dose).
At the moment, I was off monthly BC, and am planning on going back on it regularly after this period.
I had it last month around June 25, so it should be coming soon, except that I keep reading that the MAP delays your period by a few days. I also started spotting yesterday and today, which is apparently also quite normal.
I read that the sooner you take the MAP pill, effectiveness is between 95-98%. However, this is the first time I let this happen without already being on regular BC, and though I'm technically not late yet or anything, I'm worried.
Has anyone had a similar experience? Any reassurance?? I'd greatly appreciate any input. Thank you :)
Don't worry I am sure everything would be ok. Ummm, I took the morning after pill on Friday so I am still waiting. The pharmacist however told me that the cycle may be a little off. If you want to make sure though. Take a pregnancy test. Thats the best bet.
last night I had really intense cramping. At about midnight I got up and went to the bathroom and finally started bleeding. Since then it has been a REALLY heavy day 1 and quite painful too, but other than that, it was only one day late.
When is your period due? From what I read, it is still normal if it takes up to a week after it's due. Just keep an eye on it.
On a side note, a different side effect that I got from the hormone change and the stress was a yeast infection (which is also apparently really common). Taking treatment for it and both the period and the infection are going away, but if anything, I definitely learned my lesson and hope this helps others too!
I am having the exact same experience that you had after taking the morning after pill. Did it take a while for your yeast infection to clear up? I have been taking medication for two weeks and I still have symptoms of yeast. I took oral diflucan first and now I am using a suppository medication. Also, Did you have any long term side effects? since I see this has been a few years back? thank you
