Brief Answer: EXPLAINED BELOW Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for writing to us with your health concern. See there are two possibilities right now - 1. In response to the emergency contraceptive pill, there would be some amount of withdrawal bleeding / spotting. What you are experiencing could be this. 2. This could be your normal period. The emergency contraceptive pill has a side effect of preponing or postponing your normal periods by a week or more, sometimes, upto ten days. To know if you are pregnant or not, just take a pregnancy test around the 10th of January. All the best. Please feel free to ask for further clarifications.

Brief Answer: DETAILED BELOW Detailed Answer: Well you can but it is an expensive and invasive blood test. It is better to wait for a week more and take a urine pregnancy test. That too would be reliable.
