Pregnant after Morning AFTER PILL?

20 replies

I've had to take this due to an accident. Took the Levogenestrel one, I hope thats spelled right. Had two days of bleeding a week later.

I heard lots of ladies still got pregnant with MAP, so just wondering if you also had the withdrawal bleeding?

I have the strange feeling it hasn't worked, should I start shopping baby clothes?? :-)

thank you

Well how a bout a pregnancy test first?

Changemaname1 · 08/01/2021 23:06

Yes I did . Mc though ( in no way related to taking morning after pill just one of those things ) it only works if u haven’t already ovulated .

Do a test

The morning after pill works by stopping or delaying ovulation, so if you've ovulated already unfortunately it won't work. Would that apply in your case? Info here:

I didn't ovulate yet if I count the days. but took it cuz sperm can live for 5ish days. MAP taken on 27th Nov. Can I take a test now?

My MAP baby is 4 now and he is honestly the best thing that has ever happened to me! I don’t remember any bleeding afterwards. I just felt poorly and awful a couple of weeks later so did a test and there it was. Hope everything works out for you!

Carolhh · 08/01/2021 23:24

no worries kids are too sweet. all of a sudden hoped I am pregant! I think that's a sign pill hasn't worked.

Yes I bled a lot then I felt fine went off alcohol thought it was weird cried because a football team won thought I hate fucking football took a test negative took another because I was feeling sick positive

Carolhh · 08/01/2021 23:58

OMG I feel a bit scared now, not lots. but if it is postive then its fine, better have before im too old. @Theunamedcat thanks for the info, i have felt a bit nausea too.

Why is there so much advice about this MAP if it isn't effective ?? so strange

I have just found myself pregnant after taking the morning after pill. I was late but I knew it could make you late I was so emotional I done a test to put my mind at ease and got a pig fat positive.
