Effectivity of ECP if taken consecutive times

Hello! I just need to ask about my risks of getting pregnant. I was on a vacation and we ran out of condoms and the only thing I had with me was my Levonorgestrel + Ethinylestradiol pill that doubles as an emergency pill. Had a very sexually active vacation since we don't see each other a lot. This is my first time using this brand so I'm not familiar with the effects.

My ovulation as predicted is due March 30. I had unsafe sex April 2. Took my first dosage of ECP right after sex. We had sex again right before I took my second dosage on April 3. Wee hours of April 4, we had unsafe sex again, so i another ECP dosage, and then had the next dosage 14 hours after. Whenever I take the other brand of ECP, i get cramps and usually get my period 6 days after. It's been a week since I had my first ECP and I have no signs of cramping unlike my usual ECP.

Am i pregnant? Today is April 10, I am supposed to have my period April 14. Usually, with ECP, i get it earlier. (which means im supposed to have it now)

Used same generic name of ECPs but different brand. Will it matter? How can i know if i'm less than two weeks pregnant? Breasts are sensitive to the touch (this is not how I PMS. ) can it be an effect of the pill?

Thank you so much
