A:   I do understand your concern for pelvic pain after emergency contraception. Nausea, vomiting, breast tenderness, fatigue headache and abdominal pain are common side effects experienced after emergency contraception. I would suggest that you follow up with your doctor for further evaluation. You may need a blood-work and microscopical examination of the discharge to determine the presence of an infection or STD, also an ultrasound and urinalysis may be done to rule out kidney stones and a urinary tract infection.
