Indeed, if your period is 4 days late and you had unprotected sex using withdrawal 2 weeks ago (which is not a method of birth control), you could ineed be pregnant: a late period is often the first syptom of a pregnancy.

I recommend that instead of looking at your body for further clues of pregnancy -this is not only highly unreliable, it's also just not good for one's sanity- you simply take a pregnancy test immediately. - You'll know for sure within 5 minutes and can then take it from there.

Also, no matter what the result of the pregancy test, because you had unprotected sex, you will also need to get an STD screen.

if she took EC, she was supposed to have taken a pregnancy test with it. You *cannot* use emergency contraception if you are pregnant.

your friend needs to take a home preg test now (it's been long enough) if she wants to know for sure if she's preg. or not.

Just for the record, pulling out is not safe, neither is it birth control, and it won't protect you from STDs/STIs.

Pre-ejaculate ("pre-cum") can make you pregnant, and STDs and STIs don't require orgasm to be transmitted.

You and your partner both need to consider yourselves to have had a significant risk of STD exposure, and should both see about getting tested ASAP.

In the meantime, use some condoms! That means for the entire duration of sexual contact.

She'd not want to do that for the same reasons women should not continue oral contraceptives when pregnant: it can damage the fetus.

To boot, emergnecy contraception can only work BEFORE conception: there's no sense in taking it if conception has occurred, because it won't work -- it doesn't create a miscarriage, it prevents conception. That's only confusing if you think conception happens immediately with intercourse, which it doesn't usually.

They should explain this to her at PP.

In terms of your risk, yes, if you still don't have your period in a week I'd suggest another test. Of course, you could also GO to PP with your friend tomorrow and get a blood test done there.
