Question: My last periods date was XXXXXXX 4th, 2016. I had unprotected sex with my husband on the 22nd. I took EC (No Will) the next day, within 24 hours. But till now there is no sign of bleeding or periods. Is this normal?

Brief Answer:
Wait for your periods on due date

Detailed Answer:
Hello Mam, thanks for trusting health care magic.
There is nothing to worry about it as it is common to not to have any withdrawal bleeding after emergency pill intake as almost 40-45% patients don't have it.
Now just wait for your periods on expected date and in case you still don't get them do a pregnancy test to be sure.
In general periods can be delayed even so mostly nothing to worry as emergency pills have a good protection to the tune of 95% efficacy.
All the best
