I made a huge mistake. Basically I took 3 morning after

Customer Question

Hi, I made a huge mistake. Basically I took 3 morning after pills in one cycle. My last period was the 8th of January and usually lasts about 6-8 days. I have taken two tests in between and both have come back negative, I have had mild cramping but nothing like usual. Will this throw my period completely off? Should I be worried I will be pregnant?

Okay, I also came off the patch just before my last period as well so would this effect my cycle also? Will I be likely to miss this month and then return and have one next month? Many thanks!

Yes that will also affect your period.You should get a delayed period this month but should return by next month usually.Best wishes
