Unprotected sex. Took postinor 2 emergency contraceptive, hormonal contraceptives, delayed periods. Causes for delay?

Am 36 yrs old and have 5 kids. I had an unprotected sex with my husband on 12th day after my period and my period is due on Monday. I took postinor 2 as an emergency contraceptive and started taking hormonal contraceptives immediately after. Now my period is late. Does it mean am pregnant or is the drug interaction causing the delay? Am psychologically not ready for a baby now. Pls what do I take to induce my period?

Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day

If you have taken emergency contraceptive pills within 72 hours of unprotected sex, its unlikely you are pregnant.
as a matter of caution first rule out pregnancy by getting urine pregnancy test done.
If its negative, consider taking norethisterone for induction of periods

In case you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.

Wishing you happy and healthy life

Take Care

Best Regards
