HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Emergency contraception is usually fairly effective especially if taken as soon as possible.

It can affect the menstrual cycle. This includes causing a delay in the next period.
Though very effective, pregnancy should be ruled out, once this is done then you would know that it is related to the emergency contraception.

I hope this helps
