Welcome to HCM.
Please dont worry. Menstrual irregularities are common in people who take Emergency contraceptive pills ( delay in periods being the common abnormality)
Sometimes the periods get delayed by 2 months. In case if you dont get periods even after two months, using progesterone( like Primolut N) pills twice daily for 5 days will help you get periods. Remember that you will get periods 5 days after stopping the pills.

This should work for you. If it doesnt, then please see a gynaecologist and get evaluated for hormone imbalance if any.

Stop worrying and enjoy your life. But try not to commit the mistake again ( improper handling of condom) cause taking ECPs too frequently will effect your health.

Hope your nerves are eased out.
