I had unprotected sex on 24th jan and took a pill within a couple of hours. Next i had sex on 7th feb and again took a pill. My periods were due on 9th feb. Its 16th today but periods still haven't arrived. I'm cramping but there's no sign of periods. I'm really troubled, please help. Am i at risk? How long should i wait for my periods? Can i miss my periods and still not be pregnant?
Please help!

Yes indeed i took the morning pill. Also, i haven't yet taken the pregnancy test. I'd like to know when should i go in for the test, that it is most reliable?
I'm cramping and even have painful tender breasts!

Hi Anonymous,
Thank you for your question. I am a little confused, when you explain that you took the pill, are you talking about birth control or the morning after pill such as Plan B?

I will assume from your question that you took the morning after pill which is known to cause irregular periods for several months after you take the pill. This is very common. It may take 2 to 3 months to get back to a regular schedule. If you are concerned about possible pregnancy, have you tried a pregnancy test?

Thanks for additional information so we may better assist you.
Good luck,
