So I was taking birth control. And recently stopped in the beginning of the year. I had unprotected sex on 8/11 (i just ended my period) and took next choice/after pill. I was spotting on and off 2 days after. My breast started to swell and become tender,these are side effects of both the next choice pill and of early pregnancy. I have Abdominal bloating to the point my friend thinks that my body if preparing for pregnancy. It's been a week and I'm still scared. Please help?

There is a least chance of pregnancy as you have sex at the end of your cycle as well as taken an I pill! These all symptoms you are having is due to the I pill which contains hormone in high amount. Do not worry. These all will be cleared out after 6 to 8 weeks later.
