I had sex 3 days before my period.

Sep 11, 2020 I had unprotected sex with a guy, and I took ECP one day later, but my supposed to come by Sep 14, it is becoming 4 days late. I am really worried because I'm not ready for pregnancy. What could be the reason?

Looking for your advice, Thanks!

Hi Anon

Thanks for writing!

Sex 3 days before a period is generally very safe because ovulation is over and a pregnancy is extremely unlikely, especially if you have an irregular cycle. Emergency contraception often changes the menstrual cycle, causing it to start early or even several weeks late. 

If your period is late, it does not mean you are pregnant. To ease your mind you can take a test in about 10 days, if you don't get your period first. But your risk is less than 5%.
