Brief Answer:
I pill will be effective

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear, I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.Taking i pill within 3 hours of unprotected intercourse prevents the pregnancy in 95-98% cases.
I pill is also known to delay the next expected periods by 2-3 weeks.
I suggest you to wait for your periods, if delayed then do get a urine pregnancy test and if negative, then there is nothing to worry.
Hope you found the answer helpful. Please do get back for further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Regards
