Hi, and thanks for your query on eHealth forum!

Since you took the emergency contraceptive pills in April end, your next period could have got delayed. Similarly your period for June end-July too could have got delayed. Otherwise, the delay can also be due to pregnancy. Please take a pregnancy test and see and if it is negative and you do not get periods in another 3-4 days, please repeat the test. Hope this helps. Take care!
