Comment:
I took the first pill 14 hours after our condom broke. I experienced some cramping that felt like normal cramps within 48 hours that lasted a day, and were gone. I did have some fatigue, but nothing that wasn't tolerable. My period started today, and was on time as it always is. Flow seems a little heavy, and a little more dark than usual, but this worked great for me.

I took this 48 hours after unprotected sex about 2 weeks into my normal cycle. I didn't have any side effects. However, my next period was 2 weeks late and then it was extremely short and light.

I think it has worked though due to all the bleeding. I wouldn' ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I took the first dose of this drug about 30 hours after unprotected sex which also happened to be 1 week after the start of my cycle. After 3 days, I had severe headaches, and after 6 days I began bleeding (this has been happening for two days now). The bleeding is slightly heavier than I expected, and is very dark and clumpy. I have also experienced cramping similar to that I experience during my ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Two days after my period, my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex. He says he knows what he's doing and blah blah blah. But I still don't know why I let it happen, passion takes over I guess. I was very worried although he did not ejaculate inside of me, it doesn't matter. I took plan B within 15-20 hours after. I had tenderness in the breasts, a little moody, and lower stomache pains. ... Show Full Comment
