Missed period after taking the morning after pill, normal or not?

Missed period after taking the morning after pill, normal or not?

  1. <span  class="bbp-author-name">Gabrielle</span>

    Dear Doctor,

    I took the morning after pill on July 14th. My period was supposed to start this week (on July, 18th) although I decided to take it anyway. Finally, my period started two days late, on July, 20th. My following period should have started on August, 6th with chances for it to start two days late as occurred earlier. However, today is August, 17th and it is still missing, although I’ve felt ovarian pain. I did a blood pregnancy test yesterday and the result was negative. I had safe sex over 15 days ago.

    I would like to add that last month I’ve been through a lot and therefore I suffered from stress. Do you think it could be the reason why my period is late? Or maybe it is because of the morning after pills, because of the hormones it contains or something?

    How long should I wait before visiting my gynecologist? Thank you very much for helping me.

  2. Dear Gabrielle,

    A very common side effect of the morning after pill is that your period is a few days late. Blood pregnancy tests are more accurate than the typical urine pregnancy tests that can be purchased in pharmacies. Thus, if more than 15 days since you last engaged into safe sexual intercourse have passed and the blood pregnancy test was negative, it is highly unlikely that you are pregnant.

    Besides, of course mood can affect your menstrual cycle by delaying it. Shocks, anxiety, stress… these are the most common causes why your period may be late. Bearing this in mind, I suggest you just relax because chances for pregnancy are minimum.

    Best regards.
