Thanks for consulting us.
Let me tell you something about the morning after pills. These pills contain hormones that can influence your menstrual cycle. Sometimes the period comes earlier than expected & sometimes it is late especially if you have taken the pill in the second half of your menstrual cycle. However if your period is late for more than a week you should see a Gynecologist.
I suggest you should take a home pregnancy test now to see your status. Let me assure you that these pills can prevent 86% of expected pregnancies.
I hope I have suggested you the proper line of action. Please write back if you have any concerns.
Wish you good health.
Best Regards.

Thanks for following my advise & very sorry for late reply.
If you are not ready for a pregnancy then you should see a Gynecologist for help.
As far as I know, having an induced abortion is legal in your country. If you are ready for it you may proceed in this direction.
Method of abortion will depend upon your choice & age of your pregnancy. An ultrasound will help in this regard & I don't think it is too late.
In addition, I strongly recommend you to choose a reliable method of contraception after that, so that you don't have to face similar problems in future.
However, you may make up your mind & choose to accept & carry on with this pregnancy.
May God help you make the right choice.
Best of luck.
