Thank you for ur prompt response, I read the article and it seems normal to have shorter lighter period and to even skip one month.. although im stressed out because of this situation I feel better and confident that is just false alarm.. my youngest is 4months old and im not ready for another one, thanks again!!!

Hi Cron1,

Welcome to EmpowHer! Oftentimes, there will be bleeding, or a "period," after taking the morning after pill. This is absolutely normal. 

This article shares one woman's personal experience with the morning after pill, & explains that it took 2 months for her periods to get back to normal: http://www.empowher.com/reproductive-system/content/morning-after-pill-get-your-questions-answered

And this is a great resource to learn more:

Danielle.
