Ok basically my period is around 5 days late. The last time i had sex was on Wednesday 14th, we didnt have time 2 finish so he didnt come, but we used a condom and it didnt break (as far as im aware). Its too late for the morning after pill now so is there nothing i can do apart from wait and see what happens? Should i buy a pregnancy test or is it too soon?
Thanks!

The window of opportunity for Emergency Contraception closes 120 hours after the pregnancy risk so it is now too late for that. Your best option now would be to take a pregnancy test 10-14 days after the risk, If the first test is negative, take a second test 7 days later. Pregnancy tests are often sold as kits of two tests for this reason.

Thanks for the reply! I'll buy a kit at some point next week if my period hasn't come by then.
