Brief Answer: NO CHANCE OF PREGNANCY. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for writing to us. You have NO chance of pregnancy as you have undergone menopause for last 16 months and took morning after pill additionally as protection. You got period like withdrawal bleeding due to effect of the pill. It is quite common and natural phenomena. It will stop automatically within 3 to 5 days. You have NO need to worry. Maintain your genital hygiene properly. Hope, I have answered your query. Kindly, close the discussion if you don't have any other query. Wish your good health and take care yourself.
