Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Emergency contraceptive pills work in preventing pregnancy only if taken within 48 hours of unprotected sexual contact. Hence, if you have taken it later than 48 hours, it may not prevent pregnancy (as suggested by your symptoms). Urine pregnancy test kits mostly start showing positive results after about 18-20 days post-conception (roughly corresponding to about 1 week after your missed/altered periods) and you can get false negative results with urine pregnancy tests done very early in pregnancy, as the kits are calibrated ones, so unless the hormone levels in urine reach a certain level, they do not show positive results. The test should always be done on early morning first urine sample to get accurate results (pregnancy hormone HCG is believed to be in highest concentration in this sample, and you should avoid lot of fluid intake and caffeinated beverages in the night before taking the test). Wait and watch for your next periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If symptoms suggestive of pregnancy are present, or if your usual periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you have got abnormal periods, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation, clarification and assistance.
Take care.
