I had sex on the last day of my period, I didn't use a condom [Frown] So I took some emergency contraception as fast as I could get my hands on it....about 48 hrs. after [Mad]

My period is very regular and I'm wondering how will the ec affect my cycle. If all goes well, when should I expect my next period??

Good for you for getting EC!

It can throw your cycle out of whack a bit, so your next period may arrive early or late - there's no way of predicting that.

However, it won't affect the accuracy of pregnancy tests, so if your period doesn't turn up on schedule, you can always take one to (hopefully) put your mind at rest.
