I would: Early pregnancy can cause upt to be less accurate. I would check again in a few days. Then, you might have to wait until you either miss or start your next period.

About Emer. Contrac.: Emergency contraception pills are hormones and can alter a woman's periods for that month and the month after. One should take a pregnancy test (follow the instructions on the package) about 3 weeks after sex. It can be hard to predict the timing of the next menstrual period that comes after taking emergency contraception hormone pills.
