I took 2 emergency contraceptive pills in the same cycle -

Resolved Question:

Hello - I took 2 emergency contraceptive pills in the same cycle - perhaps 2/3 weeks apart. This was in early May. On both occasions there was sexual contact, but no actually penetrative sex.
I have not had a period since then, and have take 3 at home pregnancy tests - all negative.
I'm still worried and was wondering if taking 2 pills in the same cycle could override a pregnancy test. I can't shake the thought even though I know it's logically impossible I'm pregnant.

Thank you for your question.

You have absolutely no risk of pregnancy.

I think it is your anxiety that is getting the better of you.

Taking emergency pills twice is not something that can influence the pregnancy test.

Let me know if you have more questions.
