    Default Morning after pill effects?

    Good morning, just a quick question if any lady has used the morning after pill and what if any effects did it have?

    Have 2 beautiful kids and might have had a little accident last night but not 100% sure.

    I very much doubt anything happened but I would like to take it to be 100% safe.

    Thank you

    I haven't used it before but my sister has. She didn't have any side effects but was in the percentage of women that it doesn't work for (regardless of taking it within the timeframe and following instructions). So it might be worth talking to a gp or pharmacist before taking it.

    I've used it twice with no negative effects - like you, just wanting to be sure.
    Be aware though, that the sooner you take it the more effective it is... if you take it after implantation then it doesn't do a thing.

    If you're concerned about possible side effects, speak to the pharmacist. Like anything, there's a long list of potential side effects... doesn't mean they're very common though.

    I've taken it twice. A little nausea both times, but nothing major.
    You have to speak to a pharmacist to get it, so ask them if you're concerned about side effects.

    I've used it twice, no side effects either time. Oh except it didn't work one of the times, so technically I suppose a baby was one side effect! Lol

    I used it once many years ago. It was awful. I was in immense pain. Seriously the worst stomach pains ever. I could barely move and just felt so sick.

    I've used it twice. First time, no side effects. Second time my period came 2 weeks early, but other than that I was fine.
