I took next choice one dose emergency contraceptive

Patient : I took next choice one dose emergency contraceptive about two weeks ago, I had no bleeding or anything, & I am now 5 days late on my period. Could I be pregnant?
Doctor :   Hello, Thanks for the query. If you had taken an emergency contraceptive pill following intercourse, then you shoul d have ideally resumed your withdrawal bleeding within 7-10 day. but as you have crossed that period without any menses, then it is important to rule out pregnancy in this case as it may be a case of failed emergency contraception. You may perform a serum beta hCG test which is the gold standard for confirming or ruling put pregnancy for sure. I hope I have answered your query. Regards
