Pregnant After Next Choice?

I am unsure if I am pregnant or not. I had sex February 17 but the condom broke. I took 2 Next Choice pills the very next day. I am supposed to start my period again Wednesday March 7 but I began getting some dark brown discharge, I don't know what it is because it does not look like blood. I have been having very slight, brown discharge for about the past 2 days now, I only really see it on toilet paper, never enough to get on my underwear. Today the discharge was much heavier than that at about 12:15, so I went to the restroom again to see if there was anymore at about 12:30 and there was absolutely nothing there. Does this sound like implantation bleeding? I have been feeling slightly more nauseas than usual, I'm having cramps like I'm on or about to start my period but there is nothing. I'm going to take a pregnancy test next week if I do not start but this is making me very anxious. Could any of this mean pregnancy even though I took the Next Choice within 24 hours? Is it possible to still get pregnant even though you've taken the emergency pill? Would anyone have an idea what the discharge could be? Thank you!

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  If you took the next choice as described, it unlikely you will be pregnant.  Some of the side effects of Next Choice may include nausea, abdominal pain, fatigue, headache, changes in your period, dizziness, and breast tenderness.  If you are still concerned it might be good to take a pregnancy test if you experience a delay in your period.
