I had intercourse on 5/7/17, I had took the pill within 40hrs on 5/9/17. I took it didn't feel any much effects just dizziness. Then I went to sleep, the next day didn't feel much until a few days later I started to feel very fatigue, nausea, bloating, constipation, swollen;tendertenderness breast what it seemed was my PMS but it was a little worse then usual. Then the week after that on 5/16/17 I started to spot an little, the same day it got a little more when i wiped it was more blood then it gradeually got more dark blood to dark brown. But it was lighter then my regular period. To this day on 5/27/17 I'm still having a little bleeding but its dark brown with a little of red. My expected period was on 5/26/17. So I must've got my period a week early? Is it my period? Or could it be pregnancy? Or its the pill that effected all? Or something I should be concern since I've been lightly bleeding for bout two weeks now?

Hello, Anon.

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 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.
