awful lot of spots on my forehead and the top of my head

User Profile
On Sunday the 30th of August I had unprotected sex , a day later I took the morning after pill , I was made aware that this could affect my period and on Saturday the 5th of September I got what I thought was my period, only thinking back now it was extremely early as mine had only stopped not even a week before I had taken the pill (maybe four days) , I've been getting an awful lot of spots on my forehead and around the top of my neck under my ears , I just want to put my mind at peace so could anyone help me before I go and spend a fortune on pregnancy tests as I have no income .

Hello and welcome.

I appreciate your concern.

You took the morning after pill in time so you have a very low chance of pregnancy. The bleeding you described is most likely withdrawal bleeding associated with the I pill which is common and expected. If you miss your next period then you should get a pregnancy test done. Till then there is no need.

Hope it helps.
