No tests were negative with me. Very definite positive.
DP and myself are very fertile together.

When did you ladies test? Any Negative results turned positive ? x

I didn't test until weeks later. I have to say I am generally very very fertile so perhaps no surprise it didn't work?

FreakoidOrganisoid Tue 27-Aug-13 20:00:36

Yep I did

cupcake101 Tue 27-Aug-13 20:00:09

@TheSecondComing and other ladies that became pregnant, did any tests come back negative at all? x

It does prevent ovulation (if it has not already happened) but it also alters the uterine lining to prevent implantation. So yes it can still work after an ovum has been released. (It also thickens cervical mucus, but unless you can get your hands on it amazingly swiftly, that won't really make any difference).

I have also fallen trap to the Google Search.. I read of women having to wait some up to an extra month for their periods, whether this pill has something to do with them missing a period I'm not sure but I hope it doesn't do the same to me. x

Thank you for your replies, I have just taken a clear blue digital test and it says not pregnant.
I guess I have my answer, the MAP has probably just messed my cycle up. Can't believe how stressful it can be relying on one little tablet !
and yes it means morning after pill haha :D x

If you look at how the MAP works, it stands to reason some people will get PG. It stops your egg releasing, so if you've already ovulated and there is one already there waiting for the swimmers it can get fertilised...

They work on the basis of typical per month conception rate for those having unprotected intercourse including mid cycle. Then compare to actual numbers of pg from those taking map. And apparently found a much lower rate.

Yes I did. My lovely surprise is almost 4 now!

RandomMess Tue 27-Aug-13 19:19:52

Mine is 16 now. However can I just say - how do they know it's success rate as they don't know if you would have become pregnant or not had you not taken the MAP...

valiumredhead Tue 27-Aug-13 19:19:21

My sil did.

meditrina Tue 27-Aug-13 19:18:02

Levornelle pack leaflet says it can muck up your cycle by up to 5 days, so no need for panic stations at 1 day over.

But yes, it prevents about 85% of the expected PGs. So it can fail.

It must be very unsettling to be not sure what is going on in circumstances like these. I hope you get a definite indication soon.

One time I took it and fell pregnant, then miscarried very early on. Not sure whether it was linked.

Myliferocks Tue 27-Aug-13 19:15:56

I took the MAP 12 hours after we dtd.
The result will be 9 next month! grin

Applepiesky Tue 27-Aug-13 19:14:54

I think my pregnancy is a result of a failed MAP!

Holly94 Tue 27-Aug-13 19:12:43

X-post Writer grin

Holly94 Tue 27-Aug-13 19:12:20

I think she means morning after pill, Writer.

cupcake - the longer you leave it, the more likely it is that you will get pregnant. However each month you only have around a 25% chance of getting pregnant. Take a HPT the day your period is due.

Writerwannabe83 Tue 27-Aug-13 19:11:30

Just clicked - morning after pill. Blonde moment!!

I have used the MAP before and I still got pregnant. I couldn't get the MAP for 2 days, which obviously didn't help.

Writerwannabe83 Tue 27-Aug-13 19:09:58

What is MAP??

cupcake101 Tue 27-Aug-13 18:54:53

I took the MAP recently, my monthly hasn't started although I am in fact only one day over due.
I have taken 4 EPT's and all are indicating that there is not HCG hormone present.
Has anyone had a similar experiences, I was told it can delay my period but I have taken it once before and it made to begin much much earlier then it was due.
I took the MAP on the about 68 hours after having unprotected sex with my partner. I think it was day 14/15 in my cycle so right in the middle.
