Hi there.

I had a period on dec 22nd for 5days (normal) i then had u protected sex on 1st of Jan early hours and took the map on 3rd jan. I then got a 5 day heavy period exactly a week later on the 10th. My boyfriend and i had sex again on 24th of Jan, we did use a condom however afterwards it was split. He did not ejaculate as we felt the condom tear but to be on the safe side i took the map again on the 26th of Jan. I then got a normal 5 day heavy flow petiod a week later(02/02/14). My period is normally a 28 day cycle which would mean i was due it on the 2nd of March if taken from the 5 day bleed i had in feb. So far i havenot recieved my period and it is a week late. I have taken a test that had came back negative but i am worried. Is it normal for this period to be late? Thanks so much.

Hi Maryann,

I appreciate that it is not a form of contraception and have never taken it before this occasion.

I have an appointment in 3 weeks to meet with my doctor in regards to the implant so that this doesnt have to happen again.

Thanks so for your reply and you have put my mind at ease x

Hello Cms1992,

The morning after pill, like all other emergency contraceptive pills, are intended for use in emergency situations and should not be used as birth control.

The pill should never be taken more than once in the period of a month.

By taking the morning after pill on January 3 and again on January 26, you overdosed and upset the normal balance of hormones that regulates your menstrual cycle.

It may take a full month for your body to return to normal. Any further concerns should be discussed with your gynecologist.
