I had unsafe sex with my boyfriend on April 2. Took the EC right after sex. Had sex again the next day before I took my second dose. April 4 wee hours, we had unsafe sex again and I took another dose of EC and took the second dose 14 hours after. My ovulation starts March 30 according to the calendar.

I didn't have access to condoms and Im allergic to latex so polyurethane condoms are hard to come by as we were just on a vacation

It's April 11 now.... I dont have symptoms of seeing my period anytime soon. How do I know if the EC worked before my due period? I used to take EC and they give me really noticeable cramps. Now, I don't have cramps and Only my right boob feels sensitive to the touch. Is it an effect of EC? PMS or pregnancy? Help.Paranoid
