Is an emergency contraceptive pill if taken after 48 hours effective?

About 5 weeks ago I had unprotected sex with a guy. Two days after this happening, I took the 48 hour pill (just to make sure), and around 5 days later I got my period. I took a test after taking the pill to make sure I wasn’t pregnant and it was negative. However, at the moment I have a thrush infection and am taking medication.
