"hi ladies idk who will read this but 2 1/2 weeks ago me n my partner did it unprotected, n he didn’t pull out on time and nutted in me but not fully. According to ‘Flo’ it was the day after my highest ovulation day. A friend of mine got me a pill at Planned Parenthood, ended up costing 10 dollars and I took it 2 hours later. 5-6 days after I took the pill I started bleeding, it was red but brown and it wasn’t spotting, it lasted for about 4-5 days. I also got headaches, dizziness and a little bit of bloating. 1 1/2 weeks later (now) I still haven’t started my period, and I’m 2 days late. Idk what to do but other females on here said they got their period 2 weeks late, so I am hoping I am as lucky as them to get my period❤️ Thank you to you ladies who left reviews, it has helped calm me down a lot. I hope I’m not pregnant and that I get my period soon :/ I’ve been praying a lot, and I hope it works for you females.."
"My girlfriend and I were freaking out and our stress was through the roof. Our condom ripped and I had completely finished inside of her when she was 5 days from ovulation. However, she now had her period so thankfully the pill worked and hopefully we don’t have anymore of these scares. As hard as it is to not panic or stress, try not to! Pray and stay positive, it’ll work!"
"I took generic brand Morning After pill 36 hours after unprotected intercourse during my fertile window. My period tracker said it was 2 days before ovulation although due to telltale symptoms a couple of days before, I felt it might have even been the day of ovulation I’m not sure but, either way, not ideal. I’m mid 30s, I have 2 kids and don’t want any more. I felt fine initially but after 2 days started having a lot of cramping, lower back pain and bloating. Then my breasts became EXTREMELY SORE, I’m talking early pregnancy sore and I kept feeling nauseous and moody with intense hot flashes. I was feeling quite anxious with all these symptoms and took early response preg test 5 days before period due. Was negative, later that night my period started."
Frequently asked questions
"I had unprotected sex on 11/7 and took Levonorgestrel 1.5 mg on the 14/7 and this was my first time taking this dosage. Let me tell you I had the worst side effects ever. I was bloated, abdominal pain was off the roof, the nausea unbearable, mood swings and loss of appetite. Oh and my breasts felt like they were on fire. I was in so much pain. I was really really stressed . I really thought I was preggo because those side effects matched those of pregnancy. I took a test 2 days ago and it came out negative. 3 days after my expected date I got my period. My advice is to STAY CALM AND STAY OFF THE INTERNET because I got a bit crazy. The pill works but be prepared for some major side effects and anxiety. Mental note please get on the pill or some other form of regular contraception"
"Before reading my experience, I just want to tell you that you need NOT TO PANIC!! IT REALLY WORKS! I had unprotected sex on the 5th of May with a male friend that I had not been dating, nor did I see a future with. We weren’t financially ready to provide for the child. However, he came inside of me twice. After unprotected sex, I took a morning after pill about 40 hrs later (a bit late right!) During the time of taking the morning after I rarely had any side effects or symptoms of the pill, I tried my best not to stress and let the pill do it’s job. Therefore, I went about with my regular life activities and stopped stressing. Six days after (May 13th) taking the pill, my period arrived. Thanks be to God, he is great!"
"Hi girls!!! I promised to write here after drinking the morning after pill. So I had mine after unsafe sex... then I had a heavy bleeding. Next month I was waiting for my period it came so late! I was worried stressed everything. But believe me trust the process! My period came 12 days late! But I would recommend not to drink the medicine often. Take care girls!"
