On October 6th I was drunk at a party and ended up having sex. We used a condom but we were so drunk and we didn't really know what was happening so just to be safe I just took "Next Choice" the next day October 7th. After taking the pill a week later I had brown discharge for a day and ended up bleeding for two days then after that I didn't get my period for the month of October. It's November 19th today and I still haven't gotten my period,I have an irregular period but I usually get it in the middle of the month or the last week of the month,it's almost two months since my last period,am I pregnant? We used a condom and I took the pill just to make sure. PLEASE HELP ME.
The morning after pill (emergency contraceptive pill) is a safe and effective way to prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex. It will be most effective if taken as soon as possible after unprotected sex. Within 24 hours is best, but it can prevent pregnancy if taken up to 120 hours (5 days) after sex. Side effects are usually short-term and mild. Some women feel sick and it helps to take the pill with food. Anti-nausea tablets are available on prescription if needed. Some women experience a change in bleeding pattern and this is in response to hormone fluctuations. Your next period may come at the normal time, but it may be early or late and it could be heavier than usual. All scenarios are normal.
If you don’t get your next period, or it is very light, you should have a pregnancy test.
It may be a good time to consider reliable birth control options.

This is a common problem with these "morning after" contraceptives. Most likely you are not pregnant since you took it the morning after unprotected sex. It is probably just the pills hormones messing you up. They can really make you irregular for a while and can really wreak havoc on your sanity while you are waiting to "find out". I would also recommend that you perform a home pregnancy test using your first void (pee) of the morning to get the highest levels of hormone. If it is negative, you can be pretty sure that you are not pregnant. It may take several months for your cycle to straighten out. I would also recommend that you look into a hormonal birth control like birth control pills so in case you are too impaired to use barrier methods you are still protected against getting pregnant.
Alcohol, drugs and sex dont mix really well as you have found out and people dont make their best choices when they are so impaired. It is really best not to drink to such excess that you make poor choices like this. Women who have sex when impaired are much more likely to get infected with a sexually transmitted disease not to mention winding up pregnant. Birth control pills will keep you from getting pregnant but they wont protect you against STDs.
I just wanted to help relieve some stress y'all may be having. I had a period feb 8. And went on vacation feb 19. I had a one night stand, where we had unprotected sex 3 times that night, and once in the morning. I took the pill Monday morning, so 60 ish hours later. I normally have 34 day cycles, and I completely SKIPPED my period in March. I fell down the Internet rabbit hole, and psyched myself out. Even though I had numerous negative tests, I was still really sick with worry over my period. Well lo and behold, I received it yesterday, almost on time for my April period. So worry not. Take the pill in the 72 hour time frame, and take tests if your period is late. You're more than likely NOT pregnant.
