If i bleed heavily on the 28th for 2/3 with clotting after taking morning after pill on the 16thmay. Due to unprojected sex while fertile. I'm i safe?

Probably: Following the morning after pill, one can expect bleeding for the next cycle within a month, and anywhere in between. You can do a pregnancy test if still in doubt.

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
