Had unprotected sex, Took morning after pill. Started cramps and bleeding. What could this be?

I had unprotected sex on June 7th around 12:30 am. I took the morning after pill 12 hours later. I had just finished my period two days before that. I started to cramp and bleed like a normal period exactly 5 days later. I am confused because I just came off my period. I ve taken the morning after pill in the past and this has never happened to me. What could this be?

morning after pill can cause side effects like irregular periods,
it will depend on the time of the menstrual cycle when you take the pill,
if you took the pill during follicular phase means before ovulation you may have early onset of periods.
so that may be responsible for your bleeding,
anyhow if you do not get regular bleeding at expected date better to check for pregnancy once to rule out implantation bleeding etc as there is 1% failure rate for the pill.
take care.
