Typically, your next menstrual period should come within 7 days of the expected date. But if you miss your period for more than 21 days (3 weeks), take a home pregnancy test immediately!

If the result of test is positive, we know clearly that it is a sign that you are being pregnant. But if it shows negative, there may be other factors that affect your period, such as stress – to keep safe consult with a doctor for more advice!

What are the side effects?

Some women report that they experience unusual symptoms after taking morning-after pill! The side effects may vary from woman to woman.

The following are common side effects associated with the use of emergency contraception [4]:

  1. Change in menstrual period, but it usually occurs temporarily. Once your body gets back its hormonal balance, your regular periods will return to normal.
  2. Tiredness /fatigue.
  3. Nausea.
  4. And headache.

Not all women can take emergency contraception!

If you have one or some of the following conditions, you should not use morning-after pills without prescription from your doctor:

  1. If you experience unusual vaginal bleeding with unknown reason. To keep safe, see a doctor first before taking any pill.
  2. If you have DVT (deep venous thrombosis) or clotting disorder. In fact, women with this health problem are not recommended to take Plan B One-Step.
  3. And again, if you do believe that you have become pregnant, the use of any emergency contraception is useless or even may become counterproductive for your health and your fetus.
