Hello, Anon.

Thank you for your post.

Most women will get there next period at the usual time, some won't. It's recommended that you test for pregnancy if your period does not come within a week of the expected date. ECP can cause your period to be early or late, have a lighter or heavier flow, so be aware of this.
