Plan B: If your period is late (especially if 7 or more days late). Potential side effects with emergency contraception can include: tender breasts; changes in menstrual flow (spotting, bleeding, early or late period); loose stools; dizziness; headache; nausea/ vomiting; abdominal discomfort or feeling tired. If you develop chest tightness, difficulty breathing, swelling of lips, mouth, throat – call 911.

Yes: No form of contraception is 100%. I think you can take a pregnancy test after one month. Check the box... Some purport to tell you in less time.
