Hi, Anon.

Thank you for writing.

We cannot know if you are pregnant. We can only give you information. ECP is not to be used more than once in a cycle. It can cause hormonal imbalance and irregularity in your cycle. It's for emergencies only.

Emergency contraceptives are up to 95% effective when taken as prescribed within the first 24 hours, so the risk is very small. Side effects can include stomach aches, headaches, nausea and a general feeling of being unwell. Symptoms usually start 2-7 days after taking the medication and may or may not include bleeding or spotting. Not all women get symptoms. If you don’t get your next period within a week or so of its expected date, a pregnancy test is recommended. It can cause your period to be early or late, have a lighter or a heavier flow so be aware of this.
