Check a pregnancy test. The emergency pill is not 100% effective. If this is negative, it is likely that the emergency pill has upset your cycle.

I heard that you can take the emergency pill not least than 72hours after having sex. Anyone can correct me. But I also think that you should test yourself. Just to be on the safe side.

How long after the 'deed' did you take the emergeny contraception? if you took it within 24 h you should be safe, but 36 h and longer...well, might need to do a pregnancy test.
