What are the My Way® Side Effects?

When used as directed, My Way is safe and effective. Side effects may include:

  • changes in your period
  • menstrual changes
  • tiredness
  • dizziness
  • nausea
  • headache
  • breast pain
  • lower stomach (abdominal) pain
  • vomiting
Other side effects include:
  • Some women may have changes in their period, such as a period that is heavier or lighter or a period that is early or late. If your period is more than a week late, you may be pregnant.
  • If you vomit within 2 hours of taking the medication, call a healthcare professional to find out if you should repeat the dose.
  • If you have severe abdominal pain, you may have an ectopic pregnancy, and should get immediate medical attention.
Effects on Ectopic Pregnancy and Menses:
  • Ectopic Pregnancy: These account for approximately 2% of all reported pregnancies. Up to 10% of pregnancies reported in clinical studies involving the routine use of progestin-only contraceptives are ectopic. A history of ectopic pregnancy is not a contraindication to use this emergency contraceptive method. Healthcare providers, however, should consider the possibility of an ectopic pregnancy in women who become pregnant or complain of lower abdominal pain after taking My Way. A follow-up physical or pelvic examination is recommended if there is any doubt concerning the general health or pregnancy of any woman after taking My Way.
  • Effects on Menses: Some women may experience spotting a few days after taking My Way. Menstrual bleeding patterns are often irregular among women using progestin-only oral contraceptives and women using levonorgestrel for post-coital and emergency contraception. If there is a delay in the onset of expected menses beyond 1 week, consider the possibility of pregnancy.
