Is there any possibility that I'm pregnant?

I had unprotected sex in August and I took the morning after pill 12 hours later. I haven't had any symptoms of pregnancy since and have had periods every month since. During my period in the last week I have experienced severe bloating in my stomach (which I don't usually get during my period). I know it sounds silly when I talk about my period and question pregnancy but I know that some women experience something called implamantation bleeding. Any comments would be really useful. Thanks

Hi, Anon.

Thanks for reaching out to EmpowHER today.

Implantation bleeding occurs 6-12 days after the egg is fertilized. You had sex in August. You took the morning after pill, correctly, after unprotected sex (in August). You have had periods regularly since, so I'd not be concerned about pregnancy. Something you ate could have caused the bloating in addition to your period.
