After taking an emergency contraceptive pill, you should have got breakthrough bleeding by 7 to 10 days. It is difficult to predict as to you could have conceived or not with intermittent spotting as the symptom.

Kindly get your urine pregnancy test done. You need to get clinically examined as well as undertake ultrasound scan. If it indicates positive, then you can get pregnancy aborted by using abortion pills, but under medical supervision.

In case pregnancy test is negative, the spotting could have been due to hormonal imbalance. Kindly consult Obstetrician for clinical evaluation and appropriate management.

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