So my last monthly was 11th of feb, the condom broke on the 20th, I took emergency contraception on the 22nd I bled shortly after heavy for 4/5 days so I presumed it worked and I expected my next monthly 2 be late/early but it's nearly 2 weeks late now has anyone else been in similar situation

have you POAS?

MAP prevents 85% of pregnancies that would otherwise have been expected. But can muck up your cycle by about 5 days. As it's just over 4 weeks since the broken co from, I'd expect tests to be giving and accurate result.

I skipped a period after MAP (and feeling a bit ropey) - so it might be that.

I would POAS though as scaevola suggests (I did.. 3 times over a week to be sure).

I did one after a few days late in the afternoon I'm normally like clockwork so probably just being paranoid but will look at testing on Thursday

Try testing in the morning also as it maybe more accurate

I was going 2 wait till morning but I just had 2 know and being late I didn't think it would matter 2 much hopefully AF will just hurry up and arrive so I can get back on pill

It does knock your cycle off course a little bit. I was a week late when I had to take it a couple of years ago. Try a pg test and if AF still doesn't show, see your GP or Family Planning clinic
