If I was to take levonorgestrel will it delay my period from starting?
It's impossible to say. It can vary depending on how much you take, and/or even just between women, and/or when in their menstrual cycle they take it.
For some women it's makes them bleed, others find it delays any bleeding. For others they get even more bleeding & it's very heavy.
Plan B, for example, is a huge dose of artificial hormone for your body to deal with. All sorts of reactions occur.
You can get any hormonal symptoms that you'd get with a period or pregnancy, or other hormonal change in your body. The symptoms may last weeks or months, in some extremes. We see that on this forum.
