Next Choice, could I be pregnant?

Hi, I really need some answers please ): I made a big big mistake and had unprotected sex but it was only for like 3 minutes because I then knew it was wrong. I'm just worried about the precum since it can contain sperm. I had sex on Tuesday and took the pill like one hour later at 1:20pm and took the second one at 1:20 am exactly. I had tender breasts like the night after I took EC (night of Wednesday). Since I'm still young (16) my periods haven't been regular but I've been keeping track of my period since February. According to P tracker, my average cycle is 36 days and it predicted I was going to have my period today (Friday, the 21st of September) but my period doesn't always come on the day it was predicted. I've been tracking my period since March of this year and my longest cycle was 41 days and that was because I lost my virginity and I was a worrywart even though he didn't cum and we used a condom. From what I read, you're suppose to have spotting 5-7 days after taking the pill and it would be on Tuesday when I'm suppose to get my period if it's going to be on the 41th day (if that makes any sense). So, my question is, when should I expect my period and when should I be worried?

Hello tammywammy,

Here is the information directly from the Next Choice Consumer Information sheet included in the package:

"Some women taking Next Choice will have menstrual changes before the next period. Some women may have a heavier or lighter next period, or a period that is early or late, If your period is more than one week late, get a pregnancy test."

Because you have irregular menstrual cycles, I suggest that you wait until Tuesday. If you do not get your period by then, test for pregnancy.

Do try to relax because excessive stressing affect your hormone levels and can delay the start of your period.
