I took the morning after pill and then had unprotected sex

    Hey… can I ask you something?

    Well, on August, 7th I had sex with my boyfriend and he ejaculated inside of my vagina… I resorted to the morning after pill the following day but my period is still missing… what’s happening?

    My menstrual period is regular… I have it every 28 days usually. According to my period tracker, it should have started on August, 17th.

    Yeah, I know it’s only one day late but the thing is I engaged into sexual intercourse that day and he ejaculated inside me again…

    OMG is there any chance I’m pregnant now???!!!

    Help me, please!

  2. Dear Kimberly,

    The answer is yes, you may be pregnant. Emergency contraception like the morning after pill is 85% effective if taken with certain time limits, that is, pregnancy can be avoided if you take it within 72 hours (3 days) of unsafe sex. What does it mean? Well, it means that if you engage into sexual intercourse again a few days later, you are unprotected.

    However, it is important to remember that the morning after pill contains high levels of two types of hormones, i.e. estrogen and progestin. This can cause your period to be delayed.

    The problem here is that the alteration caused by emergency contraceptions hinders any possibility of calculating your ovulation cycle. That’s the reason why it is after taking the morning after pill when it is very important to have safe sex at least up until your menstruation is normal again.

    My recommendation is as follows: if your period doesn’t start within a week, take a pregnancy test.

    Best regards.
