Could the morning after pill (levonelle) be causing breast tenderness 8 weeks after taking it. Negative pregnancy test and 3 irregular periods since?
No: The levonelle is out of your system at this point but your own hormones can cause breast tenderness. If you are having irregular periods that is a sign that your hormones are out of balance and it would be a good idea to see someone to find out why. If also could be due to a more reliable method of contraception that you are hopefully using now. Hope this is helpful. Best wishes
AIt depends.: It depends on what stage of your cycle you were when you took it. You should have a normal period within the next month after taking emergency contraceptive pills (also called "morning after pills" or "day after pills"). Sometimes, emergency contraception can change the length of your monthly menstrual cycle, making your next period come as much as a week earlier or a week later than usual.
Yes: Irregular bleeding after taking a morning-after pill, like Plan B or ella, (ulipristal acetate) is somewhat common. Some women get spotting or bleeding before the next period. Women may also have a heavier or lighter next period, or a period that is early or late. A urine pregnancy test can be done 10-14 days after taking a morning-after pill, to be sure the pill worked.See 1 more doctor answer

Is it normal to bleed after taking "the morning after pill"? Even if I already got my period this month?
