Could I still get pregnant even if I bled after taking it
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 7 months ago

Morning after pill is hormone which shakes up body hormones. Due to it there can be bleeding and some change in the period cycle. The morning after pill has a very high efficacy of preventing pregnancy. Pill works in around 98% cases.

Since you had bleeding, it means it changed, body hormonal milieu, so efficacy is very likely.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
