Having bleeding a week after taking morning after pill. Is that my period again? How long should it last?

Sounds normal. When you take a morning after pill, it can alter the subsequent period. You can have early bleeding or late bleeding, or prolonged spotting. These symptoms should resolve after your next menstrual cycle. To be 100% safe, you may want to take a pregnancy test in a week or two, since this period may not be normal.
