Morning after pill<br>
I have recently had to purchase the morning after tabs, as I was reading through the side-effects, I came across the DONT
TAKE IF: and one of the reasons was if you have had and
eutopic pregnancy. I would like to know why?
I have had one about 4 months ago!
Please advise me...

It depends what morning after pill you use. Norlevo has high dose progesterone and this can predispose to another ectopic pregnancy if you happen to fall pregnant at that time, i.e. if the pill does not work. It would be better to take E-Gen-C which contains oestrogen as well.
