Had unprotected sex after periods. Taking birth control. Pregnancy test negative. Should I be worried?

My period ended on a friday (took my first active birth control pill that afternoon) and I had unprotected sex saturday morning. I took Next Choice approximately 3 hours after in fear my birth control wasn t doing it s job because it was my 1st pill of the pack. (I ve been on birth control Apri for about 8 years now) I still continued to take my birth control pills and won t be taking a break to get my period for another week. I ve taken at least 10 pregnancy test and they have all come out negative. Should I be worried?

Thanks for your query.
YOu are at least risk for pregnancy for the following reasons -
1. Sex on the day just after your period is least likely to result in a pregnancy.
2. you are already consistently on birth control.
3. You also took emergency contraceptives.
4. 10 negative pregnancy tests are more than enough to reassure you, though they are useless if taken BEFORE you skip a period.
Please do not panic so much, and wait for your period.
Take care.
