Hello
Welcome to health care magic forum
chance of pregnancy are very remote ,as your pregnancy test is also negative .there can be other causes of delayed period like tension of pregnancy after unprotected sex.so wait & watch.if no periods even with in 15 days get ultrasound done to find the cause.& get ti treated.
Wish you good health

Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic
As you have taken emergency contraceptive within 3hrs chance of pregnancy is low but it cant be completely ruled out. Rule out pregnancy by doing urine pregnancy test. Pregnancy occurs when intercourse is done around time of ovulation. Sometimes Periods become irregular after taking emergency contraceptive. Consult a gynecologist for further management. Take care.

Hi I wonder whether you could help me. My periods are regular at 28 days. I finished taking the pill in Sept 10. I have been doing the ovulation kits in June with no positive result and in July my period started on the 6th and I had a positive ovulation result on day 14 we had intercourse on day 12 and 13 and 15 missed the 14th!! I was due on my period on Aug 2nd and have done 5 preg tests all coming back negative and still have not come on my period. Why do you think this is I have never missed a period and my periods only ever last about 3 days. I took tests which I order from on line and also one test which was clear blue and that was this morning 4th Aug and that came back neg, We so want to be pregnant it justs seems strange that I have no sign of bleeding coming. I thought I had a feeling in my tummy that my period may come could this be something else? Please help me....

This month missed my period. now a week late and I have done home pregnancy test and it is negative. I have begun my next strip of active tablets. Should I be worried? This has happened before with no pregancy, this seems different. Feeling extremely tired.
