In brief: For

For most women, taking the morning after pill can cause their next cycle to become irregular. Some will miss their next period while others may have abnormal bleeding or spotting.
For this reason, you should not wait for your period (it might not come) but should continue to take your pills on the schedule you normally would. Good luck!
