  • I have never taken the morning after pill. I work with OB/GYN's and they say it is not 100%. Sorry but yes you can still get pregnant.

  • If you had just ovulated and got pregnant technically that night then the morning after pill wouldn't have worked the next day. If you have even a faint positive it is still a positive. Test again in a couple of days and make a doctors appointment.

  • The MAP is 80% effective. It works by preventing ovulation, and if it's too late for that, then by thinning the lining of your uterus so that a fertilized egg can't implant.

    It's common to miss a period after taking it, because it prevents ovulation. If you don't ovulate your body sometimes doesn't get the signal to bleed. Your cycle may be messed up for a while.

    A faint positive, read in the result window (the time frame it says to read it in), is still a positive. False negatives are more common than false positives. Test again in a few days.

  • With a faint positive, you are pregnant. It did not work.
