Hi! I always post on here when I'm worried about something because you guys are really helpful, so I was wondering if you could ease my mind about this:
Last month I took an emergency contraception pill called postinor 2 (which I'm guessing is the equivalent of plan b in America), and I got my period as usual a week after in the day I was expecting it.
last week I was diagnosed with an UTI and I started to take pills for that, and now my period is 1 week late.
I think that it might be the pills I'm taking for the infection, or maybe that the contraception pill is messing with my cycle even though it didn't immediately, but I'm still worried that i could be pregnant. I couldn't be if I had a perfect, regular period after taking a pill, right? A pill that I took because my boyfriend was really worried, but we used a condom and it didn't broke or anything, so I guess I should be 100% fine, but as my period now is missing I'm really worried.
I also wanted to tell the doctor about my concerns but my mom was there and I don't like the idea of her hearing all about my private life because she would definitely not approve it at all, since I'm 17 years old.

Emergency contraceptives can potentially wreak a bit of havoc with cycles anytime for months aft using it.

But if what you are concerned about is pregnancy, the next step there is to simply take a pregnancy test.
