Why am I regretting taking the Morning after pill?

Answered 2 months ago

Last night me and DH DTD unprotected. We always use protection so last night was really a once off.

I have just ovulated 2 days ago so knew if left to fate I would of been fertile enough for pregnancy so bought the morning after pill this morning and took it.

But now that I have taken the pill, I can’t help but feel like I will regret this decision and should of just left it in nature’s hands? I have been crying for the last half hour feeling beyond guilty for taking the pill...😥

Please help me get my head straight, why would I regret it when we were never actively trying for a baby?

For reference we have 2 DD (3 and 4.5) if that makes a difference...

Maybe you felt like that because you might have wanted something to come from it. Hopefully things will be okay.

No baby
The pill prevents the sperm swimming to the egg

No contraception is 100% effective though.

This is a common misconception actually. The pill works to prevent or delay ovulation. During or after ovulation, the pill is ineffective in most cases. The pill does not fight off the sperm.

I took the morning after pill within 6 hours of having sex and still became pregnant with my third! Previously i had fertility problems, so there is still a lot of hope that you may still end up with a baby after all! Careful what you wish for, you just may get it! Good luck either way xx

The morning after pill makes a huge mess of your hormones. It's probably the reason you're feeling so emotional.

I have actually read that and found it interesting, apparently being over 75 kgs reduces its effectiveness. In saying that I am only 60kgs

Dont worry, my third baby (those are the sneaky ones!) was conceived exactly the same way as your ‘maybe baby’.

Unprotected sex, ovulating and morning after pill!!!!

Yep! I took the pill about 5 hours after sex, kinda regretted it, forgot about it, two weeks later positive preg test.

She’s 3 now, and i still cant believe it!
