Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   How can I help you?
User :   Hello,
I have a question about pregnancy. I got my periods on the 1st June which lasted for a few days. I then had sex 2-3 days after my periods ended and took a morning after pill to be safe. A week later I got my periods (they weren't spotting because they aren't light) but they are 2 weeks early. I had sex while I was bleeding and due to my "normal" period that would of been my ovulation period (14 days since my last period started) but I wasn't sure if the "morning after pill" had changed my cycle/ovulation date due to I was bleeding while having sex. I was thinking of taking another pill but I only had one a week ago and unsure if the doctor will prescribe me another one. It has been nearly 72hours so a reply ASAP would be great. I am aware you can't give me an exact answer but just some idea on the ovulation and cycles would be great. Thanks
Doctor :   lemme read it
User :   Ok
Doctor :   The first morning after pill would have caused the bleeding
User :   Yes I am aware of that but would it have changed my cycle/ovulation date?
Doctor :   but every time a morning after pill is not the solution for your unprotected intercours
Doctor :   You should take a regular oral contraceptive or a barrier contraceptive that is rubber
Doctor :   The cycles change because of the M after pill
Doctor :   sso thus the ovulation too
User :   Yes I am aware of that, I am just wondering about the whole ovulation dates.
User :   Ok, so would that have been my period being heavy and will I get my period again in 2 weeks?
Doctor :   It depends
Doctor :   It cannot be exactly after 2 weeks
Doctor :   The nature of periods is completely unpredictable after
Doctor :   Morning pill
Doctor :   that is why it is called emergency contraceptive
Doctor :   and not as a regular contraceptive
Doctor :   What is your age
