Yes: The morning after pill contains hormones, which can interfere with your normal cycle. It is expected your cycles may be irregular if you use supplemental hormones. Remember, morning after decreases rate of pregnancy, but does not eliminate it.

Nope: It does not. Hormones are tricky, you know your body best, see how similar the bleeding is to past cycles.
