Next Choice side effect or implantation bleeding?

An_219157 posted:
I had sex with my boyfriend a week ago today. We used a condom. 13 hours later, I took the first Next Choice pill, and did the second exactly twelve hours later. My period was due to start late Monday/early Tuesday. It started yesterday morning, but has been quite a bit lighter than usual. I know that Next Choice can cause menstrual changes, but I'm also concerned that it could be implantation bleeding. I took a pregnancy test today that was negative, but I'm still worried. Was it too soon to take the test for a valid result? Am I just freaking myself out? (It was my first time)

If you used a condom AND took the Next Choice pill within the specified amount of time, it is HIGHLY unlikely that you are pregnant. You're cycle is probably just different because of the pill.
