Hi,

Emergency contraceptive causes postponement of ovulation so it prevents pregnancy with unprotected sex. As the dose of hormones in Emergency contraceptive is high. It causes delay in next period by 8-10 days. You also had taken precautions with the sex around ovulation. This leaves vary scarce chance of conception. Please wait for period for a week, mostly you would get it before that.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
