I took Next Choice EC after 72 hours. Could I be pregnant?

My last period was 2/15/2012, I had sex at 3am (3/1/12-3/2/12) thursday night/friday morning. I also had sex Saturday night(3/3/12) and Sunday afternoon (3/4/12) (unprotected obviously) I took Next choice that Monday Afternoon (3/6/12 at 1:30pm) Anytime I've taken EC I've always started to bleed, which in my mind was a good indicator that the pill worked. This time I had no bleeding whatsoever..I had the symptoms, such as cramping, nausea, constipation and whatever but no bleeding. I'm not supposed to start my period until 3/14/12 but I'm just a little concerned about the possibility of being pregnant. Not to mention I've had this clear white discharge that feels like my period but clearly isn't. It's been a week since I've taken the pill..Anyone have any suggestions?

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  If you took your pills as indicated, you should be fine.  Some of the side effects: Your next period may be heavier or lighter, earlier or later.  But if you are concerned, you might want to wait until your period is due and take a home pregnancy test.  Any time you have unprotected sex you are at risk of an unwanted pregnancy.

Here is some resources for you
