    Hi I'm new to this so sorry for the long essay but a week ago I took the morning after pill which I took about 26 hours after intercouse! My partner pulled out before but for a piece of mind I wanted to take the MAP just to be sure! I also only just finished my period last Monday and today I've started bleeding not light bleeding and not heavy but I am getting period cramps too but I'm not due on now for another 3 weeks or so could this be a sign I'm pregnant or is this side effects from the MAP? Any help or advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

    spotting and irregular bleeding is a side effect of it, but if you're concerned speak to someone about it.

    Yes, this is a common side effect and your next full period may come at a different time too.

    The time since your last period plus the fact that he didn't come inside you means that you would almost certainly have been fine without taking this. Are you going to use this to sort out a method of contraception you are happy with?

    Yes, it's normal for bleeding etc to happen after taking the big dose of progesterone that's the morning after pill.

    As ever, if you're still worried, see a doctor or talk to a pharmacist.
