Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query.

If you have had an intercourse during your cycles, there is no possibility of pregnancy. You have even taken the morning after pills at the right time to prevent pregnancy. The symptoms of bleeding and other discomfort can be a side effect of the morning after pill and it can cause changes in your bleeding pattern.
However, to be reassured, you may wish to do a urine pregnancy test after one month from your last cycle. This will relieve your anxiety. Meanwhile drink plenty of water and avoid coffee, tea and caffeine-containing beverages.

Hope this helped.
Regards
