    I have taken EC before, but this was my first time taking Next Choice. I took it the day after unprotected sex (I later calculated that this had been during my ovulation week), no more than 12 hours later. I started getting all the tell-tale signs it was working––breast tenderness, cramps, bloating, etc. After a couple of weeks of no spotting, and missing my regular period, I became worried. After ...

    When I took the one-dose pill, I had just finished my period a week before. I experienced fatigue and mood swings, then started my period a couple days after taking it, but it was light.

    I figured I'd share my experience for those who may find themselves in a similar situation and need answers. I had unprotected sex in the middle of ovulation which I was sure would result in pregnancy. I took the Next Choice One Dose about 8 hours later and felt a bit sleepy after.

    I took Plan B once, it was effective & I had no side effects. I took Next Choice this time the morning after because Plan B was not available. I am now pregnant. Do NOT substitute this for Plan B brand.
