Hello Sanjay,

Thanks for posting on HCM

It could be as a result of either pregnancy or emergency pills. One of the main causes of missed period is pregnancy ( run a pregnancy test to rule that out). Amongst the other causes, emergency contraceptive pills can lead to abnormal menstrual cycles such as intermenstrual bleeding, menorrhagia, polymenorrhea etc and even ectopic pregnancy. All can be as a result of side effect of levonorgestrel and you taking two tablets does not favor the prognosis.
For now, just do a pregnancy test and you wait for say 1-2 weeks for menses to return. If they still not coming, then i suggest you pay a visit to a gynobs for review and treatment.

Hope this helps
