I've been bloated and having on and off mild side effects i took my way last week ... and im freaking out we just did some foreplay he didn't come inside me he just rinsed it with soap and water and only put half of it back in . I've also have soft stool
Given that the tip is the bit that sperm comes out of, 'only putting half of it in', is a waste of time. Once the sperm comes into contact with the vaginal fluid, even around the lips/opening, it can travel in your fluid, to where it needs to get, to make you pregnant.
My Way (Levonorgestrel) works by delaying your ovulation, until the sperm has left your body. If you're already ovulating, then it can't do that, & you'd need another form of emergency contraception; either the other emergency pill called Ulipristal Acetate (Ella), or to have an IUD fitted by a doctor.
You can get any hormonal symptoms that you'd normally get with a period or pregnancy, really. It's a huge dose of hormone for your body to handle, & it can take everyone different amounts of time for their bodies to get back to normal, if they do not also end up pregnant.
It's not as reliable as regular hormonal birth control, it's simply worth a try in a total emergency. Better than leaving it to chance.
