    I had my last period between 17/02/2018 and finished 21/02/2018. I had to take the morning after pill on 25/02/2018 (12-15 hours tops after unprotected sex). I still haven’t got my period, did have light spotting between 04/03/2018-06/03/2018. Just really worried at the moment. Is it too early to take a pregnancy test?

    Unless you have a cycle that's shorter than most, your period isn't due for several days - four weeks from the 17th is Saturday. There are some tests that will be reliable at this point, but if you leave it until next week, all of them should be. (Insert usual reminder that Poundland etc tests are as reliable as the big names but much cheaper...)

    The morning after pill does often affect your cycle, including spotting, and - again, unless you normally have a three week cycle - you took it before you would normally have ovulated, so I think it's very unlikely that you are pregnant.

    Thank you for your reply, my cycle can be longer than most, had a lot of stress on about 18 months ago which caused my periods to stop and then be intermittent, then settle down again. Been following them since like a hawk! The last 6 months have been:

    12/08/2017 - 16/08/2017
    14/09/2017 - 19/09/2017
    23/10/2017 - 27/10/2017
    27/11/2017 - 01/12/2017
    15/01/2018 - 19/01/2018
    17/02/2018 - 21/02/2018

    I tried getting into see my doctor or a nurse but there are no appointments until the end of the month. And they didn't class it as an emergency unfortunately. Therefore as a last resort I posted here.
