Next cycle: Emergency contraception can cause the next period to come sooner or later, but after that, cycles should go back to normal. Be sure to use regular birth control if you are sexually active. There are many options. It's good that you knew about emergency birth control, but regular birth control is more effective. It would be good to start an ongoing method of birth control.
