Hi Lucy D,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  If you did not take as instructed, your chances of it not working properly are higher.  You might need to wait until your period is due and take a home pregnancy test.  Also, most women after taking an emergency pill, experience changes on their next period.  Such as, an earlier or later, shorter or longer, heavier or lighter period,

Best,

Daisy
