What are my chances of pregnancy?

So six months ago, I found myself in a similar situation and now six months later I am in the same state of worry and anxiety. I had sex unprotected July 1st, and I am not sure if it was during my fertile window or not. According to my period tracker app, I was not fertile, and I had probably ovulated on June 27th. However, still worried, I took Plan B One Step the next day after having sex, July 2nd. It has now been a week and I have been experiencing cramps for about 3 days as if my period is coming (however it has yet to come), somewhat sore breasts, and slight clearish discharge. I know that my app says it was not during my fertile window when I had sex, but you can never be too sure. I am really freaking out! I keep praying, but like I mentioned previously, this is my SECOND time putting myself in this situation to where I had to take an emergency contraceptive, and I know God is a forgiving God, but I am pretty sure He is disappointed in me right now. I am so worried. I start college soon and I can't afford a baby! A little advice please?

Hello littlepaldrino,

Welcome again to EmpowHER.

Abdominal cramping and breast tenderness are side effects of Plan.

If you do not have any bleeding within three weeks of taking the pill, then test, in the morning.

According to my app, my period was due yesterday, July 12th. Still no sign of my period. I still do not show any signs of neither the plan b pill that i took nor any signa of my period coming. I occassionally have mild cramps. Today, July 13th I took a Clearblue Digital Pregnacy test early this morning before I drank or ate anything, and it says "Not Pregnant". I often hear mixed reviews about Clear Blue pregnancy tests. Did I test too early? I am not trying to conceive any time soon, so I am still kinda freaking out that my period has yet to come!

Hello littlepadrino,

Stress can cause a delay. Try your best to relax and see if your period starts.
