Thanks for posting your query.
Since you took morning after pill within half an hour, now the irregular bleeding that you had is the withdrawal bleeding which happens due to the high dose of hormones in the emergency contraceptive pill.
This is a common side effect of such pills. Your routine period can also be delayed by a few days. Do not worry. This is not indicative of pregnancy.
But I would advise you to use a surer way contraception like oral pills as these pills if taken repeatedly can cause you menstrual irregularities.
You are not pregnant but the symptoms of pregnancy do not appear until the periods are overdue.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
