Did you take another morning after pill after having unprotected sex on May 4th? Are you on any form of regular birth control medication?
Since you are age 30, you typically won’t be as fertile as an 18 year old in your same position. However, based on the effect of the first morning after pill on your system (i.e. if & when you would next ovulate), there is an increased probability that having unprotected sex on May 4 (assuming you are not on any form of birth control) could lead to pregnancy. I would recommend that you wait a week and then take a urine home pregnancy test the first thing on the morning of the 22nd. If it reads negative, then you are probably fine, but you could follow it up with another pregnancy test on the morning of the 29th.
