Our condom broke!

I had intercourse with a boyfriend and since the condom broke, I took the morning-after pill. The next day I was supposed to get my period. However, 4 days have passed, and I still have not gotten it. Is it possible that I am pregnant? In addition, I used drops for a fungal infection, so is that perhaps a reason the pill did not work?
The day-after pill / post-coital contraception is used to prevent pregnancy at a time when conception is facilitated, which means at the time of ovulation. If the morning-after pill is taken before or later after ovulation, in this case the day before the expected period, it can disrupt the normal cycle, so the period can be both early and late. If your period is more than 8 – 10 days late, take a pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy. The method of emergency contraception is very effective, but we know that no contraception is one hundred percent safe.
