Me and my boyfriend made it on 10th December it was a unprotected sex and he finished inside me I took plan B and got my next periods on 26th of December,my next period should be between 26-30th January but it didn't I got bleeding started on 4th February it got ended in two days.now on 18th of February I am observing pain and cramps and it started bleeding on 18th of February my question is...
Am I pregnant?

Is this a side effect of morning after pills?
Why my periods arrived sooner in February?
The bleeding which caused on 4th February were they periods or bleeding?
Is it normal?

Hi, Shreya21

Thank you for your post.

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 3-7 days after taking the medication and may or may not include bleeding or spotting.
Not all women get symptoms. Some get many, or a few, or none. If a woman does not get her next period within a week of it’s expected date a pregnancy test is recommended, although the risk is very low. It can also cause your period(s) to be late or early, have a lighter or heavier flow so be aware of this. I hope this information has helped.
