Hi phummy_lorlah

Thank you for your post!

If you ovulated on the 6th (ovulation only lasts 24 hours) then you could not get pregnant from sex on the 13th.

Emergency contraceptives are up to 95% effective for women under 176 pounds (it is less effective for women over 165 pounds and ineffective for women over 176 pounds) when taken as prescribed within the first 24 hours, so your risk is very small. Side effects can include stomach aches, headaches, nausea and a general feeling of being unwell. Symptoms usually start 3-7 days after taking the medication and may or may not include bleeding.

The next cycle can be early or late, depending on how each women reacts to the medication.

A pregnancy test should ease your mind.

Hi again!

If your tests are positive, you didn't ovulate when you think you did.

Put a call into your doctor to set up an appointment to confirm the pregnancy and set up pre-natal care.
