Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

Given the proper use of the emergency contraceptive, your chance of pregnancy is extremely low, probably less that 5% chance. It does sometimes have the effect of delaying ovulation which leads to a delay in your cycle and obvious confusion and worry. While I am pretty certain that you are not pregnant, here is what I would recommend:

1. Continue with weekly tests until your period begins
2. If you get no period within 2 weeks of when you expected it, contact your doctor for an in-office evaluation
3. Also, talk with your doctor about more effective birth control options
