Ectopic Pregnancy

Are there side effects to using the morning-after pill? - Piedmont Women's Center

Yes. You may experience several short-term side effects when taking the morning-after pill. These include: Nausea and vomiting Irregular and unpredictable menstrual periods Cramping and abdominal pain—which might also be the sign of an “ectopic pregnancy” (see “What is an Ectopic Pregnancy” blog) Fatigue Headache Dizziness Breast tenderness


Keep in mind that cramping and abdominal pain that may result from the use of the morning-after pill can mask the symptoms of an ectopic pregnancy, which requires emergency care.
