Because period is over a week late after taking Ella one does that necessarily mean pregnancy?

Because period is over a week late after taking Ella one does that necessarily mean pregnancy?

Probably not: Ella, Plan B, and other emergency contraception pills can alter the menstrual bleeding for the cycle in which Ella was taken, and sometimes the next cycle too. One should be sure to check a home pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex, because Ella works most of the time, but not all of the time. Cycles should return to "routine" after the first or second cycle. ...Read more
