I took the morning after pill about 3 week's ago during my period. I am now experiencing some period like cramps and brown spotting, is this normal?

Menstrual Periods: No. First you did not in any way need a morning after pill for a sexual encounter during your normal menstrual period. One cannot get pregnant during a period. By taking the morning after pill you messed up your own internal hormones and it may take some time to recover. Which means you must be very careful about protecting against unwanted pregnancy during this time. ...Read more

I had unprotected sex during my regular periods and then i took the morning after pill can i still be prgnant ?

I had unprotected sex during my regular periods and then i took the morning after pill can i still be prgnant ?

Maybe. Maybe not.: Plan B and other emergency contraceptive pills work the majority of the time, but not all the time, so should test in 3 weeks. A urine pregnancy test done correctly gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened). If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and therefore lead to a repeat test. ...Read more
