Possible 2 is an emergency contraceptive. It is to be used only on emergency and not very frequently like you had taken it. Such consumption at short intervals is likely to cause hormonal imbalance causing irregular periods with profuse or scanty bleeding. Now once you had it, you should wait for bleeding to stop automatically. It may take a couple of months to recover back to normal. In case the problem lasts longer consult your gynecologist for further investigations and specific treatment.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
