Morning after pill effects


Q: Hello. l had unprotected sex on the 9th of February on the second day of my menstruation. I don't really have a regular cycle but my period usually lasts 7 days and my whole cycle about 31-35 days. I took postinor (2-tablet version) about 7 hours later. We haven't had sex since. I did have spotting for about 3 days around 2 weeks after taking the pill. Now, my period is about 9 days late (according to an app I have) and I'm starting to get a little worried. I have not had any pregnancy/PMS symptoms except for acne breakouts and slight back cramps. Is this the effect of the drug? What should my next move be? Thank you.
