Took it slightly before 24 hours after brief contact, probably pre-ejaculatory but not full on ejaculatory. Still, very stupid and just as terrified. Took the pill, period came six days later. Took pregnancy test, came out negative. Period came for second time, officially, not pregnant. Side note: NextChoice worked just as well after a very scary life-threatening situation.

I had had sex with my boyfriend a while back, maybe two weeks ago and according to my period tracker calendar I was fertile and we had forgotten to use any form of birth control. I started panicking. The same day-ish, we had intercourse that morning. So it might've been ten to twenty hours at the most, I got the pill and I took it. Every seemed sort of fine, when all of a sudden a week later ( ... Show Full Comment

I am 18. Had unprotected sex. It worked the first time. I started sweating and getting chills. Almost fainted and threw up the day after I took it. I also began to look super pale according to other people. It worked. My period came a day late. I have taken it a second time because the condom broke this time. I am now experiencing period like cramps , tiredness and gas. It is not time for my perio ... Show Full Comment
