Hello and thank you for choosing EmpowHer,
First of all, not everyone will experience side effects. This does not necessarily mean it didn't work. As long as you took it correctly, it will effectively prevent pregnancy.
Also, your vagina's odor should stay constant, not change depending on the time of month. A fishy or foul odor usually indicates a bacterial or yeast infection.

Taking EC twice in one week will definitely cause your period to be irregular in some way. Irregularities are not the same for everyone.
Either way, you need to see a doctor as soon as possible! Go to the ER if the fever persists. It can indicate a severe reaction to the overdose of emergency contraception pills. The mouth sores are also a very bad sign!
