Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

EC is highly effective and since you had sex on the last day of your period, this was a safer time than days later and closer to mid-month. Your risk is very low and you have negative tests.

You are likely late due to a side effect of EC which can cause periods to be late or early - usually not more than a week each way. Give yourself another week and if you don't have your period, test again but again, your risk is extremely low.
