Keep in mind I never missed a pill. Could my birthcontrol pills and emergency pill be the cause of this?

Thank you. I won’t take any ECP anymore.

Emergency contraception can help keep you from getting pregnant if you had sex without using birth control or if your birth control method failed.

Hello, Lesliie!

Thank you for posting. If you are on the pill (and also used a condom) there was no reason to take emergency contraception. If you are taking your pills regularly as prescribed, you are protected.

Side effects of ECP can include headaches, stomach aches, nausea and a general feeling of being unwell. It can also cause irregularity in your cycle so be aware of this.
