Side Effects Of Using Morning After Pills (MAP)?
Good morning, yesterday my partner and I had sexual intercourse but when ejaculated, the sperm fluid was as if we remembered only about the stomach u0026amp; my thigh only. Then a few hours later, I felt cramps in my right abdomen. If I take morning after pills even if no sperm cells enter, are there any side effects? thank you
Hello Anastia! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Morning after pills or emergency contraception is one effective option to prevent pregnancy. However this method is not as effective as other methods and is not recommended for routine use. Emergency contraception also does not protect you from various diseases that can be transmitted through sexual contact. If you are overweight, emergency contraception can fail to protect from pregnancy. The use of emergency contraception can cause side effects, both for women who have sexual relations with internal ejaculation and women who have sexual relations without any ejaculation. Side effects that are quite common include nausea, vomiting, dizziness, fatigue, headache, pain or discomfort in the breast, spots between menstruation or menstruation that are more than usual, and pain or lower abdominal cramps. For maximum effect, use emergency contraception as soon as possible after sexual intercourse, then consume more emergency contraception 12 hours after the first. There are several types of emergency contraception, there are those who take 2 pills at once then take 2 pills at the same time again 12 hours later, there are also those who take 4 pills at once then take another 4 pills at once 12 hours later. Make sure you clearly read the instructions on the emergency contraception package that you are getting. Do not have sexual intercourse afterwards unless you use other contraceptives (for example condoms). If at 3-5 weeks after taking this pill you experience bleeding from the birth canal that lasts more than a week or experience abdominal pain, immediately contact your obstetrician because you might experience a miscarriage.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
