Morning After Pill Information

There are different types of Morning After Pills, which are not the same as the Abortion Pill that is taken after a pregnancy is confirmed. The Morning After Pill is taken within 72 hours after unprotected sex. It works to:

  1. prevent or delay ovulation
  2. prevent fertilization
  3. prevent implantation after an embryo is fertilized (thereby causing an early abortion).

Side effects from the morning-after pill

Just because it is available over-the-counter without a prescription from your doctor doesn’t mean the morning-after pill is without risks. There are side effects and health risks associated with using the morning-after pill. They can include:

  • Breast tenderness
  • Bleeding between periods or heavier than usual menstrual bleeding
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Lower abdominal pain or cramping
  • Nausea, stomach upset, and vomiting

Consult with your healthcare provider to determine if using the morning-after pill is necessary. Using the morning after pill can delay your period by up to one week. Call your doctor right away if you experience any bleeding or spotting that does not resolve within a week.
