Hello, and thank you for sharing your question.

Emergency contraceptives are generally 95% effective at preventing pregnancy.  So you should not be worried about that.  It may disrupt your period which is normal.  If you do not get a period however, you can always take a pregnancy test.

Your period will return to normal next month in February.  

This month, expect it to be late, light, or you may even miss it.  But that is ok.
