irregular period after emergency contraceptive

Hi,
I'm a 24 year old weighing 45. Last Sept, I had my period on d 13th but had unprotected sex on d 23rd. I took postinor 2 (1st time i'll take a contraceptive) & my nxt period was 8 days (18th of Oct). The nxt cycle was 49 days (5th of Dec). Today is the 13th of Jan, & I stl haven't gotten my period. I'm worried cos for d past 5days, I've been getting mild cramps like I'm about to get my period but nothing. Shd I be bothered? Thanks.

Hi!
If you were my patient, I would not be too worried about pregnancy, although, I would want to rule it out, and would do a test.  I would be concerned about the possibility of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome.
I would check some blood tests such as thyroid, prolactin and fsh levels.
I would recommend checking in with your doctor!
Good Luck!
Dr B
