  • You mean you are a week late for your period? I would take a pregnancy test. No methods are 100% accurate.

  • Did u take the pill the morning after or did u wait? If u waited, there could be a problem.

  • Sometimes the day after pill can start your period before its suppose to come and it can also make it come later than its supposed to because your body isn't used to that pill being in your system. give it some time and if your period still doesn't come than take a test. hope that helps you out. i know i was confused on why my body acted funny when i took the day after pill.

  • It sounds like bigebee_21 knows more about the pill than I do. I hope everything works out for the best for you.

  • So sorry to hear that. That's aweful. Take a pregnancy test just to ease your mind. It probably is the pill just messing up your cycle. Get counseling as well. I've been where you are 25 years ago. I have a son from that. I love him very much. I thought I couldn't but he doesn't not deserve my love because of the way he got here. There was no morning after pill back then. If there would've been I would have taken it. That being said no one deserves to be put in that situation. Just know that it isn't your fault and please make sure you get counseling if you haven't already.

  • I think u can take it up to 72 hours after and it's supposed to be pretty effective. It can affect ur period. If u kept the box, there should be a folded ip piece if paper that explains all the side effects.. If u dont have the paper, another option would be to google side effects on the one you took.

  • Take a pregnancy test pronto. A blood test from your ob/gyn or regular doctor will be the most reassuring.
