Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

No risk of pregnancy practically.

2 courses of morning after pill will cause change in period timing.

And you took the last one very close to your expected period.

Light bleeding is common from morning after pill.

You should resume your regular period by next month.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
