No Symptoms after Taking the Morning after Pill

cute brunetteHi Hannah,

I had unprotected sex three days ago, and went to get the morning after pill in the morning. I know the quicker you take it the more effective it is – and I took it as soon as was possible after having sex. But, I have had no spotting, no period, and no reaction and I am getting very worried that I might be pregnant? Is there a chance I could be pregnant?

Dear Constance,

So, if I read you correctly, you took the morning after pill the morning after you had sex (perhaps a 12 hour delay)? You should be fine. When taken that quickly, it tends to be 95% effective. However, it’s always safest to take a pregnancy test to be sure. You’ll want to wait until your next period should come to take the pregnancy test; I’d recommend to wait until your next period should have ended (assuming it doesn’t come on time).

As far as symptoms from taking the morning after pill, it sounds like you are the dream recipient! At least, from the perspective of the companies which make the pills. Not having any symptoms is a good thing. There is nothing to be worried from that. Many girls take Plan B or Next Choice and experience hardly a thing. Usually those who do experience side effects are the ones most worried!

Do note that the morning after pill may cause your next expected period to be late or or early or skipped altogether. Or, your next period may come right on time.

Best luck!
