Hi I really am in need of some answers. I had unprotected sex on Dec 28 and I am for sure he ejaculated inside of me, so the day after I took Next Choice. One pill at 11:11 am and one at 11:11 pm. I read somewhere that you are supposed to start spotting or bleeding after you take the pills, but I am not. It has been 5 days (Jan 2) and I do not see any hint of blood. I did start feeling some sharp pains in my abs and stomach though. Could I be experiencing early signs of pregnancy? I am planning on taking a test next Thursday, Jan 12 to receive clear results.

Hi Lissa

Thanks for your post!

Bleeding can happen but it's by no means a mandatory thing.

Your symptoms may be PMS - is you period due? If you had unprotected sex on the 29th, it's likely far too early for pregnancy systems as it takes 6-10 days to actually become pregnant after unprotected sex and longer for morning sickness to start.

You can test when your period is due. There are no guarantees with emergency contraception (EC) but 7 out of 8 women who would otherwise have become pregnant, do not, if they take EC. So the odds are in your favor.
