Fenix: if you, as in the last two posts, are referring to your very recent risk, a pregnancy test is NOT going to work right now. They cannot be taken accurately until the day of your first missed or late period, or, at a minimum, ten days to two weeks after you have ovulated, if you know when you ovulate.

(And emergency contraception will not work after you are pregnant, only before conception can occur, which is why it is poertinent if it has been less then 72 hours to five days that you call your doctor or clinic ASAP).

I'd suggest you use the search function at the site, please. You'll find lots and lots of discussion about pregnancy tests, and at the site itself, tons of information about contraception, emergency contraception, and pregnancy testing.

Why don't you start right here: Pregnancy & Parenting
