A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query.

Consuming emergency contraception frequently, almost 2 consecutive cycles, can cause severe hormonal changes in the body. It can delay the cycles or even lead to an early cycle, some women even miss 2 cycles in a row. It can also cause very heavy or milder bleeding than usual.Hence emergency pills are only for occasional use. Wait for your cycles, in case you do not get them in a week's time, do a pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy. It looks more likely to be a side effect of the pill. Consult a gynecologist for regularizing your cycles.

Hope this helped.
