We have numerous questions and comments to answer. I have answered your question sufficiently. Take a pregnancy test then you will know for sure. No one over the internet can give you a 100% guarantee. Contact your doctor for further information if you prefer.

You are likely not. Even though you took the ECP, it's still advisable to take a pregnancy test. If only for peace of mind.

Hi, Hernandez,

Thank you for posting.

Emergency contraceptives are up to 95% effective when taken as prescribed within the first 24 hours, so the risk is very small. Side effects can include stomach aches, headaches, nausea and a general feeling of being unwell. Symptoms usually start 2-7 days after taking the medication and may or may not include bleeding or spotting. Not all women get symptoms. If you don’t get your next period within a week or so of its expected date, a pregnancy test is recommended. It can cause your period to be early or late, have a lighter or a heavier flow so be aware of this.
