Okay so I had unprotected sex a couple days ago. I went and got the morning after pill in the morning I took it within 12 hours. I was exactly in my ovulating period. I don't know if I should mention that I usually do not take the pill or any other contraceptive (else than a condom). Since the day after I took the pill, I've started to have little cramps and tightness in my lower stomach (uterus), I've also been feeling a bit nauseous but I never actually threw up. Been going on for two days. I'm two weeks away from my next periods, I don't usually get cramps, I don't know what's going on I'm afraid there's still a chance I might be pregnant. Can someone please help??

Welcome to this forum.
First of all, the chance of getting pregnant is almost nil here. These pills contain high quantity of hormones which can disrupt your inner hormonal balance temporarily and can be a reason for these symptoms. You might have a delayed next cycle also but don't worry. This can be also due to the pill itself.
Hope I can address your query. Please visit your doctor if there is any further confusion as without a clinical examination it is not possible to opine through an online medical forum.
