Am I Pregnant after Unprotected Sex Join this Group

I took Next Choice and that same day i had spotting. Help?

By September 15, 2012 - 7:39am

Me and my fiance had sex. Roughly 3 days later I took Next Choice. After the second pill, I had back pain and I had some spotting. I read other places bleeding usually occurs a week after or lasts a week after, but this lasted less than 24 hours. I don't understand if something is wrong or if I'm pregnant or what's going on. Can any of you help me?

Please don't comment with another question for someone else to answer. Make your own thread please.

Hi abloomingrose

What you are describing sounds like a normal side effect of Next Choice. Not every body reacts the same way to the surge in hormones; what you read online is what may happens on average, but that doesn't mean it will happen for all.

NC has about a 92% success rate so your risks are low. Your next period may be early/late/irregular but if you are worried about pregnancy, you can take a test 14+ days after you had sex and you should get an accurate answer.
