Hi Anon,

Potentially you could be pregnant, but to know for sure you would need to take a pregnancy test.  Anytime you have unprotected sex, your risk of pregnancy is higher. However, taking an emergency contraceptive does reduce your risk, especially if you take it within 72 hours.

Wait until your menstrual cycle is a full 7 days late and take the test. I hope this helps.
