I took the emergency contraceptive 3 days ago. All yesterday and so far today i have had a dull pain in my abdomen.
What could be causing this?
Could i be pregnant?

wait 10-14 days following the sexual encounter in question and take a pregnancy test. but it is very unlikely that you aren't pregnant.

be aware that emergency contraception can cause nausea and tummy aches, so it may just be side effects.

I think Gumdrop Girl meant it's very unlikely that you are pregnant. Provided you took the EC correctly that is.
