Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

Taking emergency contraceptive pill can cause menstrual irregularities like delay in period or intermittent bleeding.Your periods could have delayed because of the emergency pill you took.I advise you to wait for a week and if you dont get period by then , get a home pregnancy test done.

Take care.
