Hi Anon,

If this was your period, then you coundn't have been in your fertile days. A woman usually ovulates between day 11-21 of a cycle, but everyone is different.

I took it out of fear, and I will be looking into birth control. But since I was out of my ovulation time I should be safe right?

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  If you had protected sex, why would you take an EC.  This is not a form of birth control.  Most women experience changes to their next period heavier or lighter, earlier or later.  If you feel using a condom is not enough protection, you should see a doctor and he might prescribe birth control pills.

Here is a link that will help
