Hi Anon

If you are having unprotected sex, then you are risking pregnancy. Taking emergency contraceptives is a good idea, it lowers your risk to a great degree but sometimes it can delay your next period so this may be what is happening with you.

However, there is still a risk of pregnancy and since you are quite late for your period, a pregnancy test would certainly be accurate now.
