Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. I am glad you reached out to our community with your concern.

An emergency contraceptive pill prevents pregnancy by preventing ovulation. If your period was due to start on October 20, when you had sex on October 14, ovulation already happened.

In our bodies, progesterone is a hormone, that when levels drop, your period starts. An ECP contains a high dose of a made in the laboratory form of progesterone. So, taking the pill just six days before your period was due, increased the levels and could be the reason your period is late.

Wait, and if you do not have any bleeding within three weeks of taking the pill, test for pregnancy.

Is this white discharge thick, like cottage cheese? If so and you are having itching, this may be a yeast infection.
