    Default Falling pregnant with the morning after pill?

    Hello ladies,

    I was just wondering if anyone on here has fallen pregnant with the morning after pill? I've been reading and it only appears to work by stopping ovulation. But if you've ovulated I'm going to assume it doesn't work?

    I've not ovulated in 3 months, and I assumed I wouldn't this month, so I stopped temperature charting and everything else and then met someone. I'm pretty sure I managed to ovulate the day we ended up together and then got the morning after pill 48 hours later.

    I'm more curious though if anyone on here has fallen pregnant regardless of taking it?

    I'd love another little one, but I just didn't think the circumstances were quite right this time.

    Thanks

    I believe it is supposed to work even after ovulation by inhibiting implantation.
    But even then it isn't 100%.
    No personal experience here, but hopefully someone else can answer that part for you

    Yes it's designed to prevent ovulation if it hasn't occurred already, but if you've ovulated it's still designed to prevent pregnancy. If you are already pregnant then it will not "abort".
    Success rates decline after 24hrs though, and severely decline after 72hrs. The sooner you take it the more effective it is.

    Good luck! I saw you were ttc last month. Hopefully you are happy either way. When is AF due?

    There is a new emergency contraception pill available in Australia that can be effective up to 5 days post unprotected sex. It's more effective than the old one as it can stop ovulation after the luteal surge has begun. Its called "EllaOne" and it's prescription only at the moment as its new to Australia but has been used overseas for years.

    Default Thank you

    Thank you ladies for your replies. They really help.

    I was on a previous ttc board, but unfortunately my partner decided cheating was the way to go. Oh well. I'd love another little one, but not like this.

    Thank you again.

    How awful! Hope you are ok. When do you think you might need to test?

    I took it within 24 hours of unprotected sex and still fell pregnant. I took it exactly as directed, didn't vomit it up (as can happen due to nausea being a side effect).
    Unfortunately the pregnancy ended up being an ectopic and I have heard mixed opinions (from different doctors I personally spoke to) as to whether the pill played a role in the ectopic. Some are adamant it couldn't, but the specialist I saw at the hospital for my post surgery check up said it definitely could have triggered it as it interferes with the normal conception progress.
    Anyway, that's just what my experience was.

    Sorry to hear your circumstances. I took the morning after pill the morning after sex and within an hour of ovulating. It didn't work (thankfully) and I have my beautiful DD2. Good luck and hope you get the outcome you wish.
