Morning after pill failure?

Hi, I am new to mumsnet and messaging because I am really freaking out about the possibility that the MAP may have failed.

12 days ago I was a little foolish and didn't use condoms (he pulled out but we were both drunk and I am not sure I trust that he did in time every time) so I took Ellaone the afternoon afterwards. I didn't get any side effects and assumed everything was fine.

Now it is 12 days later and for the last two days I have felt nauseas constantly. 2 days ago I also had bad cramps but they went away. I think my period is due tomorrow but I am not certain as for some reason I hadn't put my last period into my tracker and so have had to put in when I figure it was. When I did that though it told me I would be ovulating around the time I had unprotected sex.

I know that really the only answer is to take a pregnancy test but I am really scared to do that and equally think I'm probably just being ridiculously paranoid and I'm not pregnant anyway.

So I guess I'm asking if this level of nausea nearly two weeks after the MAP is normal and whether anyone else has experienced this too and either ended up pregnant or not been?

One of the side effects of the MAP is starting your period slightly earlier than normal and having a slightly different period, I was told.
So maybe this is just really bad PMS?

I would still test, just to be on the safe side

I really hope it is just bad pms - if so this pill is clearly not something my body likes.

If you had ovulated before taking the MAP then it would not have worked. You need to POAS, sorry. flowers

I am travelling home tomorrow. If AF doesn't arrive tomorrow I guess I will have to POAS - sounds so much less scary when I write it then when I say it.

How'd it go OP?

Still no sign of AF and still nauseas all day, but I was flying home from holiday so couldn't POAS. I will go get a test after work tomorrow.

Good luck OP

The test was negative, so I am hoping AF will be on her way soon to ease my mind.

I know it's annoying when threads aren't updated so I thought I would add that my period finally arrive 8 days late. It was a stressful week waiting, but I guess the pill really does mess up your hormones. I will try not to have to take it again.

Glad you got the result you were after! The MAP really messed with my cycle too when I used it a few years ago.
