I had sex a couple weeks ago and the condom broke, then a couple days ago i had sex again and it broke again and i took the morning after pill to be safe, also i shouldve gotten my period around the time i took i. Its been a few days since i took it and im having pain like period cramps and brown discharge.

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

Condom breakage is rare and is usually due to the fact that people don't use them properly. Make sure your partner is using a condom that fits well and that he takes the time to put it on properly.  

With regard to pregnancy, emergency contraceptives are 90-95% reliable when used within 24 hours. Your symptoms are more likely due to taking EC than pregnancy. Your cycle may not be changed due to taking EC. If you don't get a proper period within 4 weeks , test for pregnancy.
