When in doubt: just check pregnancy test. And if you are still not bleeding normally and first pregnancy test was negative, check it again in 1 week.

~85% chance it works: A "morning-after" pill works most of the time but not all of the time. A woman should be checking a urine pregnancy test 3 weeks after sex, to confirm non-pregnancy. If having sex and not on a birth control pill or other reliable method, then she should always carry condoms wherever she goes (that means keeping them in her purse, pocket, etc...).
