Hi Anonymous,

Thanks for your question - I think it's one that many women have after taking EC! Because the pill(s) that you take are basically an extra strong dose of birth control hormones, it is only natural that your menstrual cycle get mixed up a little bit. You may not get your period until later, you may spot for longer, or you may have much lighter/shorter bleeding than usual. In all likelihood, it is due to the extra hormones in your body. Personally, my menstrual cycle took about 6 weeks to regulate itself, as I experienced bleeding immediately after taking EC and then skipped my next period.

If you are really stressing about it, I recommend taking another home pregnancy test. Especially now that it has been a little while since you took EC, the test should be accurate and will definitely soothe your anxiety.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions!
