Brief Answer:
Effects of the pill

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
The bleeding you had was due to the hormonal effect of the pill.
I pill usually delays the next expected periods by 2-3 weeks.
So, of your periods are delayed, then you get a urine pregnancy test done.
If negative, then you can safely wait for the periods to come.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
