Could I be pregnant or am I overthinking this?

Okay, so I had unprotected sex with my bf and took Levonelle two days after and I'm having all the symptoms of ovulation but I'm not sure if it could just be side effects of the tablet and Levonelle only has an 84% success rate and I am seriously overthinking all of this. Has anyone else been in this type of situation?

Yes and it was fine. It is incredibly unlikely you got pregnant, but take a test in 2 weeks just in case. Then if you are, you can discuss options with your GP.

I had to take the MAP but couldn't get it for 48 hours and unfortunately it ended in pregnancy.

I think the effectiveness of the drug is severely reduced if not taken in the first 12 hours after sex.

I required it on another occasion many years later, took it within about 4 hours after sex (the condom had torn) and I didn't get pregnant.

The most important factor though I guess is did the sex occur in your fertile window?

I was on the final days of my period and straight after my period I had ovulation type symptoms (the gooey white vaginal discharge, cramps, bloating, heightened senses and sex drive). But I'm not sure if that could have been due to the Levonelle?

If you were on the last few days of your period then I imagine it would be very unlikely you'd have conceived as in general, in an average cycle, I don't think ovulation would occur for another ten days after that. Obviously some people have much shorter cycles than others and sperm can live for 5 days so I guess there's always a small possibility of conception.

How long are your cycles normally?

My cycles can be rather erratic but recently they've been really short (probably due to pressure at work and uni), I normally have my period every 20 days or so for about 4-5 days, sometimes I have two periods in one month. So it's rather hard to say for definite how long my cycle is.
