I was having regular 29 day cycles. However, I was stupidly drunk one night and had protected sex 4 days before my expected period (May 21), and the condom slipped inside of me. I'm not sure when it slipped, but there was some cum in the condom when I took it out. (It was also my first time having sex.) Within 12 hours, I took an emergency contraceptive (Next Choice) and took the two pills at the same time as I was told to do. I started what I believe to be my period 9 days after taking the pills, and 5 days later than I expected my period (May 31). It lasted for about 6 or 7 days, the usual length of my periods.
I am now concerned that I may be pregnant because I haven't had a period yet. It is now July 10, which is about 40 days after I had a "period" following the pills. I thought because I had a period that I was in the clear, but I've done some reading and realize that isn't always the case. Is it normal to be this late on the second period after taking emergency contraceptive? I'm not sure if it's a side effect of the pill or not. Just recently I've noticed bloating, so I don't know if I'm being paranoid.
I plan on taking a pregnancy test, but I'm incredibly nervous. I have never wanted my period so badly in my life!
Can anyone offer any information or similar situations? What is the likelihood that I could be pregnant?
