Experience

I had to use it twice. Both times I was already quite stressed about becoming pregnant, and some side effects didn’t help considering that they can be similar to pregnancy side effects. I also experienced bleeding a few days after taking the pill that lasted 3/4 days so it changed my next cycle predictions which doesn’t help. I find it a bit frustrating that there Isn’t any information about the bleeding anywhere. They all talk about “spotting” but I don’t feel like that accurately describes the bleeding felt after taking the morning after pill.
