Couldn't find what you looking for?


My long time boyfriend and I had unprotected sex for the first time. I am on birth control and the day I was suppose to start with my period I took a morning after pill as well. Just for safety. Its been a few days and my period is still not here. Did the morning after pill cause me to skip my period?


Hi Jess,

Possibly.  The morning after pill is a very large dose of hormones and it can make your period early, late, heavier or lighter than normal.

The birth control pill is more effective than the morning after pill so you probably didn't need to take it.

If you had sex just before your period, within a week or so, it would be unlikely for you to get pregnant anyways.  The egg wouldn't be viable.

Hope it helps.
