The effect that EC has on the menstrual cycle varies from person to person, and even for one person it can be different each time they take it.

So, it's really best not to worry too much about it. If you need some peace of mind, the best thing you can do is take a pregnancy test at two weeks after the risk (if your period hasn't shown up by then).

so.. its possible for you to get your period at the normal time after EC? I know on the inserts it says it can make it late, but is it entirely possible for it to come on time?? [Razz]
