Need Help!

i took the morning after pill just after my last period (the condom broke)
i took a pregnancy test a couple of weeks later which came back positive the next day i took another which came back negative. i started bleeding the day after that not a normal period it was lighter and only lasted nearly 3 days.
wondered if anyone can shed some light for me.

Re: Need Help!

As a general rule a pregnancy test can give a false positive but not a false negative. The morning after pill can do all sorts of strange things to your period. My advice would be to another test, if its negative believe it and wait for your period. If its positive I would advise you to go to the doctor and get a blood test. I wish you all the best.

Actually it's the other way round. Tests don't give false positive, they only show positive if they detect HGC which they won't if you aren't pregnant. A test can give a false negative if it's not sensitive enough to detect the HGC in the very early stages.

As for the bleeding, that doesn't necessarily mean anything, I bled with my second pregnancy.

I suggest you get yourself checked out by your doctor.

Re: Need Help!

I agree the best would be do go to a doctor. Also the morning after pill if taken too excessively and continously can be hazardous to your health. Its best only if used as a one time emergency.
All the best
