Hello, I am in my early 20s and took Levonorgestrel as


Q: Hello,
I am in my early 20s and took Levonorgestrel as a precaution (we were safe but the condom was still in me afterwards). I'm about 120-125lbs and have been feeling terribly sick the past few days. Diarrhea, lower abdominal pains, tiredness, and soreness. It has been 11 days since taking the pill, I was supposed to be ovulating and fertile when it made me have my period again and the symptoms started, now that has been 4 days ago. Should I be worried? Should I see a doctor? How long will this uneasiness last and will the pill be in my system?
