I got my period on August 13, and the day after, had unprotected sex with my boyfriend. I took the morning after pill, and then bled for almost two weeks - which is abnormal for my cycle.

We've had sex a few times since then, but all times were with a condom and most of the time, he pulled out as well.

My cycles are irregular - sometimes 28 days, sometimes 31 - so I suppose I shouldn't be too worried right now, but I haven't started my period yet, and I'm scared I'm pregnant.

A few days ago, I started getting my normal "pre-period" symptoms, back aches and sore breasts, but I know these can also double as signs of pregnancy, and I still haven't started.

If someone could just give me some advice, I'd really appreciate it.

One of the most common side effects of EC is a late or missed period. So chances are, that's what's going on here. If you're really worried, though, you can just go ahead and take a pregnancy test to be sure.
