My period is late after the morning after pill. Am I pregnant?

On June 15, about two days after my period was over, I had sex with my boyfriend and the condom came off inside. We didn't notice until after we were done, so I took the morning after pill (Levonorgestrel 1.5) about an hour later. Four days after, I bled (period-like) for about four days. A week or two later, we had (unprotected) sex again, but I panicked and stopped a few thrusts later, meaning that he never came inside me. My period always comes 5 days before the previous month--this means I was supposed to get my period the 5 or 6th of July. Today is July 15th, and there are NO signs of a period. When I stick my finger up my vagina, there is barely any discharge. I'm scared I might be pregnant and I'm too stressed since the day I took the pill. I'm 17, my parents are too conservative and I can't go to the gynecologist by myself.

Hello. Thank you for posting.

Having unprotected sex is not a good idea if you don't want to get pregnant. So, for future, insist your partner use protection, correctly (so there is no chance of it coming off). Your period is likely delayed because of the ECP you took. Stress can also impact your cycle. If he did not release inside you the last time you had sex, it's unlikely you are pregnant. You are 17 years old, but not a child, certainly, and have the right to see a GYN if you want to. If your parents would not help you, ask a friend or a trusted adult to take you to a GYN or Planned Parenthood, if you feel you must get checked. But, a pregnancy test can ease your mind. They can be bought in any drug store.
