Can a next choice pill make your period not come for more than two months?

Hi Glamour!


The most common side effect of an emergency contraceptive is changing the woman’s cycle. This can be scary, particularly if it causes a late period on someone who is concerned about being pregnant. Here is a complete list of its side effects:


Side effects may include changes in your period, nausea, lower abdominal pain, fatigue, headache, dizziness and breast tenderness. Some women may have changes in their period, a heavier or lighter next period, or a period that is early or late.


Anon, the medicine in these pills change your hormones and can affect your menstrual cycle for a couple of months. I do not find it at all surprising that your cycle is still a bit off. If you took the medicine correctly (which sounds like you did) and had some sort of a period after, I would wait a while before getting worried. The unfortunate thing is that it is going to take a couple of months before your menses is back on track.

Hi, i had took a next choice pill in august, and had a 2 day (period) which is not normal for me because i had a week period normally. Well september came and i had no period at all, and now were in october only having about a week left and still no period. I spoke to my doctor, and tested blood and urine test for pregnancy all negative so its bbeen almost two months no period... Is that normal for a next choice? To make you skip months of your period??
