could I be pregnant?

I had sex 8 days after the start of my period. My period ended after 5. The condom broke so I took plan b 48 hours later. It's now been 2 weeks and I've developed tummy cramps, tender breasts, and some nausea. Help! How likely is it that I'm pregnant??

Hi Anon!

Emergency contraception is up to 95% effective when taken within 24 hours, so your risk is very low. Your symptoms may be that of PMS or a side effect of the medication.
