My last period started on December 5th and lasted until December 9th. On the 9th, I had sex and the condom ruptured. I got the first dose of Low Ogestrel on the afternoon of the 11th and the second twelve hours later. The next day, I bled very heavily and continued to bleed for three days, like a period. However, I am now two weeks late for my period and am experiencing bloating and a sudden gain in appetite. I have taken three pregnancy tests over an interval of four days and all three came out very definitely negative. What are the chances that I could be pregnant despite not having sperm in my body during ovulation, bleeding heavily after sex, taking EC, and having three negative tests? And if I'm not, is this extreme lateness a normal side effect of taking Low Ogestrel without ever haven taken birth control pills before? I don't have a regular gynecologist to go to, I'm 17 and I don't have health insurance. I previously had to get an abortion because of a rape, I'm terrified of having to go through that again and I'm really, really losing my mind right now.

It's probably the start of your period or some spotting. Like I said above properly used EC and multiple negative pregnancy tests (which you can expect to be accurate given when you took them) mean pregnancy is highly unlikely for you.
