Hi Mamabear14

Thanks for your post!

According to the MyWay website : "The most common side effects (10%) in clinical studies were heavier menstrual bleeding (31%), nausea (14%), lower stomach/abdominal pain (13%), tiredness (13%), headache (10%), and dizziness (10%). Some patients taking My Way may also experience breast pain, vomiting, a heavier or lighter period, a period that is early or late, or menstrual changes such as spotting or bleeding before their next period. In a clinical trial, 95% of patients had their menstrual period within 7 days of their expected time."

So you got your period a week after taking it, you are not pregnant. Your period may now be delayed to to a common side effect. You should probably gauge your next period from the time you had your last bleeding, a week after you took My Way.
