Need to take the MAP- sex 36 hours ago, ebf 9 week old no periods yet but panicking
But looking online says not safe if had previous ectopic - had tube removed last year after ectopic preg. Doesn't seem concrete no go but freaking out- any advice?

Speak to the dispensing pharmacist and ask their advice. The longer you leave it to take, the less effective it is so you need to try and sort it soon (I think it's 3 days maximum where it will be at all effective)

Hope you managed to get it sorted LUW.

The reason for the non-recommendation is that there is a school of thought that the MAP can be responsible for an ectopic pregnancy. I have no idea whether or not this is just anecdotal or has been proved by research.
