Hello, on Sunday took...

Hello, on Sunday took levonorgestrel on Sunday (less than 120hrs ago, and within 12 hours of incident). My period would normally be due in 7days. On Tuesday I have breast tenderness and a little cramp. Is this normal with levonorgestrel, or could I have ovulated and its too late.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you been keeping a personal medical record?

What type of record

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No I was on antibiotics

Since levonorgestrel can cause hormonal fluctuation so it is most likely cause of these symptoms.

It looks like you have requested another expert.

Just to address your question, most antibiotics do not interfere with pills. Therefore, you don't have to worry about effectiveness of pills while on antibiotics, unless you are taking rifampicin.

Please let me know if you have any follow-up question for me.

Thank you Doctor, what about the ovulation period. How effective is the pill during that period. I am 7 days away from my normal period due date.

What is your cycle length, 28-30 days? Is it regularly on time?

28-30 days, and i am regular
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Last start day of period was 25th of Feb, and incident day was Sunday 11th of March. Took the two pill on the same day, and gain 12hrs later

It looks like you had that event during your ovulation time. But the good part is that you took the emergency contraception within 12 hours. In most cases, it can prevent pregnancy if taken before ovulation, but less effective specially during or after ovulation, it may fail. But still it provides a good protection for most.
