Thank you for posting a question.

You have taken the pill, within 24 hours of having sex. So, there is very little chance of pregnancy.

The pill contains hormonal agents which may alter the hormonal balance of your body. Thus it can cause delay in period. But it is temporary. In this case, you can feel that your period is coming.

But, for confirmation, you should do a home pregnancy test using urine. If it becomes noncontributory, you can do a beta HCG test in your blood or an ultrasound scan of abdomen. Ultrasound scan is the gold standard investigation in this regard.

If the pregnancy test is negative, you can wait for another week. But after that, you should consult with a gynecologist for clinical examination and further management accordingly.

Hope this information suffices. Let me know, if you have any more question.
