I had sex on Feb 2, and my period was due to start Feb 6. I took a morning after pill (postpone 72) the next day and it's now Feb 6, no period. However, I have lower abdominal cramping and tender breasts. Is this just the pill's side effects ? Should I be more worried ?
It's worth learning how your menstrual cycle works. It could have saved you worry & unnecessary chemicals.
If your periods are regular, there's no way you'd be fertile that close to your period, & emergency contraception would not have been necessary.
Plan B is a huge dose of artificial hormone for your body to deal with. You're likely to have hormonal symptoms that you'd get with a period or pregnancy, & may not be able to rely on when you're fertile or due a period, for a few months.
Everyone's different, so it's a case of waiting.
