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!
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 :
- Change in menstrual period, but it usually occurs temporarily. Once your body gets back its hormonal balance, your regular periods will return to normal.
- Tiredness /fatigue.
- And headache.
If you have one or some of the following conditions, you should not use morning-after pills without prescription from your doctor:
- If you experience unusual vaginal bleeding with unknown reason. To keep safe, see a doctor first before taking any pill.
- 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.
- 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.
