Q for Doc!! Please help
My girlfriend used the emergency contraceptive around the 20th of June. We took a home pregnancy test yesterday the 10th July which tested positive. She says that for the last week she has been getting period like cramps, but her period has not started yet. Is she pregnant or is the emergency playing havoc? Please help!

The emergency pill would not give a positive pregnancy test. I would suggest that she has a blood test to check.
