Hi I have taken the morning after pill 3 times in the last month, the first time i took it i had a normal period afterwards but then a week later i took it but I dont know if i needed to as I was a bit drunk and i cant remember if i had intercourse but havent had a period yet and then just took it again a week later which was yesterday but my partner didnt come inside me and still havent had a period. Im worried that i could be pregnant and what harm have i done to my body. I am 35.

Welcome to XXXXXXX

Morning after pills are hormonal pills and meant for emergency purpose only.

In routine you should use protection which prevents transmission of STD's also.

Menstrual period begins on 14th day after ovulation, but Morning after pill can delay or prevent ovulation. Thus your period can get delayed without pregnancy also.

Morning after pill was not required just after normal period.

As you have taken morning after pill every time, chances of pregnancy are very very low.

You have to wait for your menstrual period, and please avoid morning after pill's use before that.

With good wishes,

Thank you Dr. XXXXXXX i intend to go on the pill once my period arrives. I feel like i want to vomit and keep getting empty reaches. I was just very worried because I heard that you shouldnt take the morning after pill twice or more in the same cycle.

Welcome again,

You should not worry now as it seems that your period is only delayed, but in future please avoid it's use except in emergency.

For nausea, you can take Domperidone tablet thrice daily.
