disruption in menstruation?

i am nearly 27. i took i pill within 12 hours of unprotected sex. following which my period came about a week early and it was lighter than usual.(may 25 to 29). following that there has been no appearance of another period till today, except for some spotting (which i have never had before), from june 17-24, when i did heavy physical activity. i understand that i pill may cause temporary disruption in menstruation. but is my condition normal?

You should get done urine pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy. Some hormonal disturbance may lead to menstrual irregularity. i-pill is not a contraceptive pill, it is a abortive pill so be cautious.

I went on diuretics due to water retention. Took them for three months and the was advised to stop. Two weeks after I was supposed to get my period, I had all the symptoms and even spotted one day. Now 18 days have passed and still no period. I gained six pounds right before my period was due (this usually happens and I loose it again mid period), I have not lost the extra pounds yet. I am not pregnant. Could the pills have tampered with my period or could it be something else. I am 27 years old so it could not be menopause. Sorry if I have misspelled, English is not my first language. Hope you are able to help - M
