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

It may or may not.: Potential Side effects w emergency contraception include menstrual flow changes (spotting, bleeding, early or late period). Take pregnancy test & notify Dr if your period is 7 or > days late. The bleeding may be be between cycle bleeding or there is potential for an early period.

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.
