Hi Anon

There are no medical recommendations to make - your period will come along when it does, you cannot force it. 

As always, a pregnancy test will let you know where you stand.

Hi Anon -

When taking an emergency contraceptive pill, it's a normal side effect for a woman's period to come at a different time than usual. Some women will start their period earlier or later than normal. Menstrual flow can be lighter or heavier than normal. There is no way for us to predict when yours will come.

You can find more information about side effects here: http://www.serc.mb.ca/sexual-health/birth-control/emergency-contraceptiv...

Hope that is helpful,
