For Emergency Contraception "Hi I had unprotected sex on Aug 6, 2018 My last period is July 31,2018 I have 28-30 days cycle each month Lasted 6 days but on the 7th day of my cycle we had unprotected sex he used withdrawal then after 5 hrs I took My Way emergency contraceptives, but after a week after taking it i had a very little spotting brown color and I feel lower abdominal cramping and my breasts are sore. I also feel little bit nauseated and always tired. I still have 2 weeks to wait for my period. My question is it normal to have little bit brown spotting? Am I pregnant for experiencing this sign and symptoms? Thanks"

For Emergency Contraception "I took My Way 7 days ago. I had a week of anger and tears, my breasts swelled didn’t fit in my bras. Breasts went down yesterday, I felt calmer. But tonight they're painful/swollen again. I’ve been pregnant before & I remember vividly noticing breast changes, but I doubt in the 1st week. . It nearly always throws off your expected period, so expect that. It does NOT cause miscarriage from “chemicals”. It contains a very high dose of hormones, 1.5 mg, this major side effects. Please read up on it. And track your cycle!"

For Emergency Contraception "I had spontaneous unprotected sex with my child's father. I took the pill less than 20 hrs after sex and found that I was spotting about a week later and my breasts were swollen. I never spot and never for just a day so I knew I was pregnant because of the experience with my daughter. Waited 2-3 more weeks and no period. I'm currently not pregnant because I took dong quai and vitamin c."

For Emergency Contraception "So I took My Way after my husband and I had unprotected sex. I did wait one day to take it, but the guidelines state within 36 hours is the most effective. Well I'm now 5 weeks pregnant. Ugh. I know everything will work out and this baby will be a blessing, but come on! I know we had sex during my peak ovulation period and so the pill may not have worked bc apparently it only is effective if you're ovulating, which is probably something that should be mentioned on the box."

For Emergency Contraception "Took this pill less than 48 hours after a slip-up on the day of ovulation. I’m normally 107 pounds but I freaked myself out and stopped eating - dropped down to 101 by the time I took the pill. Discharge became thick and not slimy like normal. My period came 2 days early, and was mostly brown blood, and drippy(?). Lasted about 5 days. Some other things I should mention I guess: I had no spotting, but my discharge had a yellow tint. Side affects were hard to pinpoint because of the anxiety and stress of the whole situation. I wish the best of luck to you. It sounds crazy for me to tell you to stay calm, but try to stay as optimistic as possible! As for the reviews of women it didn’t work for, remember that this pill will most likely work, and most success stories want to just move on after. Sorry you had to scroll through this, just wanted to put a positive story on here"

For Emergency Contraception "I rarely leave reviews but some woman out there is reading this who is nervous and curious so here’s my story: I Took My Way ONE day after the “slip up” (NOT EVEN 48hrs) however it was also one day before ovulation for me. I was super nervous reading reviews of other women who said it delayed their cycles, hoping that’ll be my story too, nope!! IT DID NOT WORK!!! My period never came and my pregnancy test came back positive!! This was my first time ever taking this generic brand of Plan B but it was the only one my pharmacy had. I’m not sure if it’s because I was so close to my ovulation date but it definitely did not work!"

For Emergency Contraception "I took the pill within 48 hours of having sex with my boyfriend. I was anxious at first because my period was late but it finally came (6 days late)! The pill can make your period come late but it definitely works! If you're reading these reviews because you're panicking - calm down and take a deep breath, just because this isn't the original Plan B pill doesn't mean it's less effective or anything, it works and it serves its purpose :)"

For Emergency Contraception "Took My Way 6 hours after having unprotected sex. He actually came inside me with no condom on. My period was 5 days late. No pain before period came or after taking the pill. Cramps are more intense than usual during period but other than that, no side effects. This pill works."

For Emergency Contraception "I'm 39 and my last period was on 12/14/16. My cycle is usually 27 days and always on time. Had unprotected sex once this month on the 17th day of my cycle which shows 2 days after ovulation (Dec 30th 5am). He pulled out. Wasn't sure about taking a MAP but took the "my way" pill anyway on Jan 2nd (lil over 72 hrs) for my own sanity. I've been crampy, clear discharge w/white strings (sorry tmi), gassy, felt slight nausea. EP was yesterday 1/10, so i'm 1 day late. I plan on testing on 1/13. I will post results. I read that it could be up to 48-56 days before I see a period with negative tests. Paranoid."

For Emergency Contraception "I had unprotected sex and took this about 3 hours afterwards. I was so scared for so long! I had about two days of light bleeding a week before my period was supposed to come. I was afraid it was implantation bleeding! But it wasn't! Hallelujah!!! The pill definitely mucked up my cycles for a while. My next period didn't come for two months. Anyway, if you are freaking out about the possibility of being pregnant, take a breath. I know how scary it is. It is absolutely terrifying. But this pill works! You are going to be ok!"

For Emergency Contraception "I had unprotected sex twice within a couple of days from each other. I nearly maxed out the recommended 3 day window before I took My Way. Within a couple of weeks I received what would have been my period however it wasnt a full out period. I had a heavy flow for 2 days and it was nearly gone after that. I thought it had worked but lately I've been nervously awaiting my next period to come. Still questioning the pills effectiveness I decided to go ahead and take a pregnancy test. Turns out I won't be a mother after all! My experience with Plan B and My Way were totally different. Between the two I had a more nerve wrecking experience this time around. Next time, save yourself the headache and wrap it up. Remember, it is not birth control."

For Emergency Contraception "I weigh about 180 pounds so it's always a hit or miss situation with the emergency pill. I've used the generic Plan B (Take Action, I believe was its name) before and that worked. I've taken My Way before and it worked, but this time was different. My partner and I were using a condom, but had broke and he had precummed into me. We slept together a few days before my period was supposed to come. I wasn't worried until the day my period was supposed to come, had passed. I was freaking out of course (even though I wasn't ovulating), but I still had about 12 hours to take the pill. I was ready to beat the clock. I went to the pharmacy and got the pill. Took it with about 11 hours to spare. 6 days later, I got my period. IT WORKS!"

For Emergency Contraception "Had period July 9-14, unprotected sex on the 25th (supposed to be ovulating). Bought the pill and took it within 3 hours. Didn't notice any symptoms Anyway supposed to get my period August 8 but it never came I was freaking out bc I had spotting and pain on my right side. Bf convinced me to be patient and wait, 10 days later I got my period with the worst cramps ever! Will take a test soon just to be extra sure but I'm glad this worked when I had my doubts & expecially during ovulation"

For Emergency Contraception "My Way worked for me as emergency contraception. To help other users decide if this right for them, here is so information about my situation: I regularly take B.C. pills Ortho-Novum 1/35. This month, I messed up the first week of my pack. I missed Tues, had unprotected sex on Wed, but then missed Thurs too. (I made up the missed pills according to pack instructions.) Technically, that was two missed pills in the first week following my period so I took My Way on Friday afternoon because there was the risk for pregnancy. I continued the rest of the pack normally. I did not experience any side effects unlike with Plan B One Step. My period came one day late during the placebo pills (week 4 of the pack). I am 24, 4'11" and under 90 lbs."

For Emergency Contraception "I took this weighing 145 lbs and 5'6". Took My Way, not expiring till 2017, within three hours of sex. I read that over 165lbs it becomes less effective but apparently 145lbs is in the less effective range too, I am now 8 weeks pregnant. Beware."

For Emergency Contraception "I am a 35 year-old mother of two, recently divorced. I just started dating a great guy. I'm not yet taking regular birth control. The condom he used on day 17 of my cycle slipped off while inside me(it was too small or not properly shaped for him). The condom ended up getting stuck behind my cervix(weird), but I was able to retrieve it after some panic. He did not ejaculate, but does produce a good amount of precum. I was worried, even though I knew I'd already ovulated. I decided to take My Way about five hours later. I got my period right on time. The side effects I experienced: cramping, fatigue (the whole two weeks), looser stools than normal, night sweats,moodiness, terrible 3 day migraine before period. It made pms 10x worse."

For Emergency Contraception "Ladies calm down!! It will be ok!! I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend on February 17. The next day within the 24 hour period I got my way. I had very bad back pains and abdominal pains. That last a few days. The next day I took my way I had some spotting. I was expecting my period on February 25 but I didn't get it until today! I was so stressed out I even took a test. Ladies, your period may be late. It's normal. Don't worry. You'll be ok!! Such a weight off of my shoulders."
