I took the pill after having unprotected sex with my boyfriend. It was not on the exact hour (few hours after) so I went to the chemist and asked for the Emergency contraceptive pill which I had straight away. I took this at least 3 hours after sex. On a monday I came off my pill so I could have my period just so it could reassure me that I wont be pregnant but my period still hasn't come yet and it's thursday. I'm really worried because I thought i was being safe by taking the pill and the ecp. Could it just be all the hormones that are stoping me from getting my period? Could someone please help me make sense of it all? Thankyou for your time.
You did not need to take the ecp. Taking the pill late can increase your risks very slightly. Since the pill is 99% effective and the ecp is 80% efffective, you can see that it would take allot of misses before the ecp was beneficial. Now your body is rebelling against all the hormones and your period probably will be late or not at all. Just restart your pills when they are due and don't worry overmuch since you are on the pill and have a very minimal chance of being pregnant.
