Lupus And The Morning After Pill

I took the morning after pill and 2 days later i had to take antibiotics does this affect the efficacy of the pill?
Took the morning after pill, and then the same day i had unprotected sex, will the morning after pill still work?
Do the morning after pill Aftera work if conception has taken place? Also when taking the pill do the 72hrs start the day of or after sex
Not as well: Emergency contraceptive pills work best when taken right away (so they probably should be called "minute-after pills" instead of "morning-after pills"). If conception is when the egg gets fertilized (not later), then Aftera and other brands of levonorgestrel still have some effect. Start counting 72 hours at ejaculation; and always check a pregnancy test 3 weeks after emergency contraception. ...Read more
Hi! When after unsafe sex and taking morning after pill I can take a pregnancy test? And also when the symptoms of pregnancy appears? Thanks.
Taking a pregnancy test 29 days after unprotected sex. Will the test pick up the pregnancy hormone? I plan on taking it with the first morning pee.
Depends: Hi. It depends on when the unprotected sex was relative to your LMP. In general, you only do the pregnancy test after you've missed an expected period. For instance, if your unprotected sex was a couple weeks after your LMP, and now it's been 29 days since the sex, then by now you would have expected a period a couple weeks ago (assuming normal, regular cycle); if you missed it, the test will tell ...Read more
My girlfriend takes acnemini pills and she took the morning after pill 40 hours after sex and this was the 8th day after her period. Will this work?
Yes: It should work. With her already being on the mini pill and having taken the morning after pill within 72 hours of unprotected sex (even though technically if she was on the mini pill she was protected), there should be an extremely low risk of pregnancy. Best wishes to you and her. ...Read more

I took the morning after pill on the 11th day of my cycle. Took it 7 hours after incident. I threw up 3 hours later and took another morning after pill as advised by the pharmacist. My period is due this weekend. I had cramping last week however this week
I must assume some: details since you didn't specify. Specifically I assume that you had unprotected sex between the 8th & 11th day of your cycle and are now at about the 24th day. The chance that you conceived is small but real. Repeating the morning after pill now will not change that. However, a (-) pregnancy test NOW can relieve your worries. A (+) test will give you time to consider your options. ...Read more
It shouldn't...: A morning-after pill is emergency contraception, which means it is used once in a long time, maybe once a year or once in a couple of years. It is not meant to be used as recurring birth control. Because a morning-after pill is a big hormone dose, but only one time and clears out quickly, there should not be effects of long enough duration to change thyroid hormone levels in a noticeable way. ...Read more

Will the morning after pill work if you had unprotected sex more than once on the same occasion and took the pill a few hours after?
Yes, but...: Remember the morning after pill is nowhere near 100% effective. Most studies put it around 80% effective, meaning you have a 1 in 5 chance of getting pregnant if you have unprotected sex during your fertile time and use this product. Not the best odds I would want to deal with when failure means you have a child to deal with for a lifetime. If you're not ready for that, I suggest you get on other. ...Read more
I took the morning after pill on the 17 the first pill one hr after sex then the second and four days later i spotted is that normal?
I took the first pill from the birth control pack in the morning and 15 hours later had unprotected sex. What are the chances i may end up pregnant?
Im on birth control and took the wrong pill at night and after realizing took the right one in the morning. Can i be pregnant? Can i keep taking it.
Depends.: This depends on the type of birth control, and the type of the other medication you are taking. If you are using an oral contraceptive that contains an estrogen and a progestin, then it is likely still effective and you have little to worry about. However, if you are using a pill that contains only a progestin, then it is possible for you to get pregnant this cycle. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
