My last menstral period was on July 10th.. I had sex on the 19th of July, the condom broke. I took the morning after pill on the 22nd of July. I started my period on July 28th, I think it was my period. It was lighter than normal but still lasted 3-4days. I feel hungrier than normal. My breast are tender, my stomach feels fuller.I do not want to be pregnant..I'm really nervous about this whole thing. My question is, could there be a slighter chance I'm not pregnant? If so, when would I start my period again? Or am I pregnant? Could the hormones from the morning after pill, cause unnormal bleeding and still get pregnant? What are the possible actions that could be taking place now in my body? Thanks in advance!

Yes, the morning after pill will mess with your hormones and that can mess with your period. You did take the pill very late. It is more effective the closer to the unprotected sex you take it.

There can be a chance that you are pregnant. You can take a pregnancy test around 7 days after your missed period if it did not come yet.

I had unprotected sex on the 8th of february, took the morning after pill on the next morning around 11am. Now i'm having some bleeding and it is 7 days after i had sex. Am i pregnant or is it just a side effect from the pill?
