Taken morning after pill after sex. Abdominal cramps, swollen and hard abdomen. Normal?

Hello, I took the morning after pill on Sunday and during intercourse last night (while using a condom), there was a pop sound/feeling and fluid came out. The condom did not break and today I have been experiencing abdominal cramping/pain which started on the lower left side and has become severe throughout the day. It has now spread to my low back and all the way around my abdomen . My abdomen is hard and swollen. Are these symptoms normal side effects from this pill? I took the generic, single pill dose. Thank you

Thanks for using Healthcaremagic,
After going through your history, you have taken emergency contraceptive tablet for suspected potentially unprotected sex.
First thing as you have taken tablet so you should not worry about pregnancy as they are very effective way of emergency contraception.
This is hormone tablet and can cause nausea, Vomiting and abdominal pain, breast tenderness, usually resolve in 24 hours.
If it is not relieved and increases in severity you must consult a Gynecologist for assessment of cause.
In future please practice safe sex as it protects from unwanted pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases.
You can also choose some regular contraceptive methods like pills or IUCD.
Hope this helps,
Please take care.
Good Luck.
