I took the morning after pill two weeks ago. I started having sharp pains in the pelvic area yesterday, so I took a test and it was positive. I'm really scared that it will be ectopic. I regret taking the pill and hope things turn out well. I don't have a good feeling though. We went to the hospital tonight but the wait was too long so we're going back tomorrow.
I'm still in shock! Is there still a chance that this will be a healthy pregnancy?

Definitely. The morning after pill is just a high dose of bcp's and doesn't affect a pregnancy. I know PLENTY of people who have gotten pg after using it, and on the pill and their babies are healthy little rugrats now. Try not to worry.

The morning after pill is supposed to prevent implantation of a fertilized egg up to 72 hours after unprotected sex. If the egg already implanted when you took it, no harm/no foul. Make an appointment, go to Planned Parenthood, just go see your regular doctor, w/e. There is every chance in the world of having a healthy pregnancy, as AmieV said above - PlanB is just a high dose of birth control pills. Take another home test if you want to, and make an appointment with your regular doctor, Planned Parenthood, or a midwife or obstetrician. If you continue to have debilitating, constant, severe pain, certainly seek emergency treatment, but otherwise just go get checked out by a doc or midwife, and don't worry about the unforseen.
s to you - I hope things turn out well for you.

Congrats!!! I too have a friend who took several bcp's in hopes of mimic'ing the morning-after pill, and she ended up having a healthy daughter anyway (homebirth/waterbirth, btw!). The pills didn't affect her pregnancy AT ALL. Good luck!
