Couldn't find what you looking for?


I would like to know if anyone has had brown and light red spotting after the morning after pill for at least a week and still become pregnant? I have taken it before many years ago and never had bleeding and wasnt pregnant but this time I've had brown spotting for over a week. I was taking St Johns Wort at the time or using the MAP but it was only a low dose and the chemist said it should be fine. Thank you for any replies


Hi Guest,

Spotting after taking an emergency contraceptive is a possible side effect.  It doesn't always happen and is not an indicator that it is working or not working.

Wait at least 2 weeks from when you had sex, preferably 3, then take a home test with your first morning urine.

Good luck.
