User :   Hi there, i recently took the morning after pill, and exactly a week later my period came. Although it was very light. This lasted for 5days. On the 5th day, the intercource happened again. Aftwards - the bleeding returned but slightly heavier. (Not sure if i had my period during the intercource) But anyways i had been experiencing this for 6days. On that day i started to feel my usual symtom of tender breasts before my actual period would arrive. And now today (7th day) Which would have been that actual due date to my period before i took the morning after pill. My period became very heavy, but not quite normal as it was more of a water bright red, insted of my usual dark red colour. I'm also experiencing my usual backache now which i get when my period is here. DO you think i could be pregnant?
