If you are worried, the best way to reassure yourself is to do a pregnancy test. Remember that the morning after pill si not very effective if taken twice in a short time.

This is not a snotty remark, but just the truth- taking the morning after pill like its smarties is going to cause havoc in your system, you need to respect your body. Why dont you use the pill or the injection and then you wont have this problem?

Morning after can also make your periods to come late.

Hi there,

The morning after pill can mess up your cycle for a bit after you have taken it. Maybe that is why it is not as per usual? Will leave gynae doc to answer from an expert point of view though. Hope you feel better about it soon.
