had sex with my BF on Saturday night and he ejaculated in me and I took postinor 2 the next 30 minute, I took the 2 tabs at once. I started feeling pain in my lower abdomen The next morning. The next same day, we had sex again and he did same, and I bought postinor 2 again, this time, I took it as prescribed at 6pm and again at 5am an interval of 12 hours complete. After 2 days, since the last one I took, I developed catrrh, I sneeze all the time, headache, dizziness, bloating, farting, verging foam substance from my stomach. Today making one week since all that and Am still not bleeding and now am feeling somehow heavy in my lower abdomen. please, help me, I no I made a wrong choice, just help me tell me what could all this symptoms stand for and why am I not bleeding ?

Dear Anon,

Thank you for your message.

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.

You have taken this medicine incorrectly and too much of it. If you are feeling ill, see your doctor.
