Brief Answer:
The chances of pregnancy are less.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

The chances of pregnancy have always been there with unprotected sex.

The chances of pregnancy are less in your case as you had I-pill with in time( less than 72 hrs.).

One day spotting is a side effect of I-pill because of high dose of hormone in it, that was not your period.

You should go for a home urine pregnancy test if you missed your period by 7 days.

Hope it is useful, feel free to discuss more.

Brief Answer:
Seven days delayed considered normal.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Nice to hear from you once again.

Seven days delay in your period can be considered normal in your case.

If you get pregnant, pregnancy can be aborted with abortion pills upto 49 days.

There are other method for abortion called D&C( a surgical method of abortion ) for abortion in first and second trimester pregnancy.

In your case if you get pregnant abortion pills can be used for abortion.

Hope it is useful.
