The "morning after pill", like the regular anti-baby pill, is a remedy that interferes with hormone balance and other metabolic processes. In addition to the desired, therefore, as with all medications may also occur undesirable effects. Both preparations are, however, in principle considered to be well tolerated.
"Pill afterwards" - most common side effects
The most common side effects are nausea, dizziness, headache, fatigue, lower abdominal pain and breast tenderness. Diarrhea and vomiting also occur. For all forms of side effects, if you feel bad or feel insecure, do not hesitate to ask your doctor for advice.
"Pill after" - vomiting
To avoid nausea and vomiting, it is advisable to eat something before taking the tablet, for example a slice of bread. If the pill is still vomited within three hours of ingestion, a second tablet must be taken as soon as possible because the body may not have completely absorbed the active ingredients. Be sure to read the leaflet!
"Pill after" - diarrhea
Diarrhea as a side effect is not so rare. If you experience severe diarrhea within 3 hours of taking the morning-after pill, you may need to take a second tablet to get the full effect of the pill. But you should consult your gynecologist first to discuss this possibility.
"Pill after" - bleeding
Another common side effect is menstruation after taking the "morning after pill": bleeding, spotting, premature and delayed periods, and unusually heavy bleeding - all these side effects are possible and no cause for concern. Talk to your gynecologist anyway.
