Dear Lulu

Yes it is possible to miss a period and have a negative pregnancy test . It is possible also that the use of the emergency contraceptive pill is responsible for the delay of your period. I would advice that should you not see your menstrual period within the next week that you visit your gynaecologist to exclue the possibility of an ovarian cyst.
