Took levonelle after unprotected sex. Missing periods. HPT negative. Should I be worried?

Hi, I took levonelle after a condom split.. took it within 12 hours of it happening. I was only on the 3rd day of my cycle when intercourse took place which I have been told is a good thing (less likely to get pregnant) . However I am now 12 days late,not really had any signs that I am starting my next period. I have done 3 pregnancy tests , last one when I was 4 days late and all negative. My friend told me it is normal to be quite late as she was 2 weeks late when she took it. Any answers will be gratefully received, thank you .

Thanks for writing to us.
The delay in your periods is likely to be due to the side effect of the emergency contraceptive that you took. Since your repeated pregnancy tests are negative, there is nothing to worry. You can wait for your periods for one week more.
