Hi Taylow18

You could be delayed due to both, as you mentioned.  Emergency contraception is up to 95% effective when taken in the first 24 hours but it's not foolproof. 

Since you just had an abortion, it's crazy that you are having unprotected sex within a month. You can't depend on EC - you need to use condoms 100% of the time (no side effects either!) or you need to use another method of birth control 100% of the time.  

You can test in about two weeks of your period doesn't come before.  Again, your risk is low.

So... I was five weeks pregnant and decided to terminate the pregnancy . About three weeks after the nonsurgical abortion I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend but we used a morning after pill. I haven't seen my period since the abortion ended and I'm scared that I might be pregnant again. It's already 4 weeks since the abortion. Can the fact that I had an abortion be delaying my period or could the morning after pill not have worked since I had an abortion...?

I'm a bit scared, I want to know what's the chances of getting pregnant after you just finished your period? Like the 1st day it finished and the 4th day aswell he ejactulated inside me and I'm not on the pill? I got off the pill last week and because I missed four pills it brought on my period two weeks early! Will my period go back to its normal dates ? As you see I'm really confused please get back to me
