Doctor: Hi,Thanks for the query.I understand your concern.As you used condoms and took the emergency pill within 24 ho urs of the intercourse the possibility of pregnancy is less in your case. Irregularities in menstrual cycles can occur due to many causes like stress and strain, weight changes, lifestyle modifications, gonadal or thyroid hormonal imbalance, prolactin level changes etc.Please go for urine pregnancy test once to rule out the possibility of pregnancy.Then you can take tablets to induce withdrawal bleeding with your doctor’s advice.Take care
