    Hello, I hope the cramping and breast tenderness have stopped. I think it's a good idea to see your GP now if it's still there.

    The side effects for these medications are similar and usually last a day or two at most. They may include: belly pain and cramping, breast tenderness ,dizziness, feeling tired, headache, upset stomach and vomiting.

    Because it's Levonorgestrel which is a high dose progestogen which can cause those side effects, but should not last very long. Other symptoms that can last after would be spotting and changing of your cycle.

    Again, hope they have already disappeared. 😃
