I took a morning after-pill. Now my period is 13 days late


Q: Hello,

I am an 18 year old girl, and I had unprotected sex the 3rd of october. I took the morning after-pill about 15 hours later. The 10th of october, I begun a somewhat irregular period. I didn't have the usual pain or cramps, and it was a little spotty. I was relieved, because I though it meant that I was not pregnant. Now it's the 21st of november, and so my period is 13 days late. Im getting a little bit nervous, and want to know if this is normal after taking the morning after-pill. After all, it is a big amount of hormones I've suddenly consumed.
- Maybe I should take a pregnancy test just to be safe.

Thank you.
