the emergency contraceptive pills can possibly protect from pregnancy as you have taken within time after intercourse,
they are having side effects like menstrual irregularities, they can prepone and postpone the periods depending on the time when they have taken, and can also cause symptoms like pain abdomen etc,
if you do not get periods within expected date, you once check for pregnancy as the tablets are having 1% failure rate.

take care
