Can I still fall pregnant
I am on the pill, but read somewhere that if you have gastro the pill is not always effective. If this is true...... After having a bout of gastro a previous week, and a night of sex, I decided as extra precaution to take the morning after pill. I was supposed to start menstruating this week but haven't started. Is it due to the morning after pill, which has thrown my cycle out slightly or could I be pregnant? And if I could be pregnant, would a home preg test pick it up already after a week?

It could be either. Do a pregnancy test.
