Can delay in periods be due to pregnancy?

Welcome to HCM
I have carefully read and understood you query
I hope you will find this useful
There are very much less chances of getting pregnant after taking a morning after pill within 24 hours of unprotected sex.Don't worry the morning after pill may cause a disturbed cycle.The periods may come early or late.Delay of periods by one day is not an issue.I won't recommend you any tablet for periods right now.But if you dont get periods for one more week,get back to us,we will surely help you with your query
I will be happy to know if you have found answer to your query
Thank you
