Is period disruption normal after the morning after pill?

I recently had to take the morning after pill twice in one cycle due to two unfortunate accidents within a week of each other. Afterwards my period came on time and lasted for the normal length - however, after a few days I got what seems like another period (slightly lighter than usual) that has lasted over a week and doesn't seem to be ending. I assumed this was because of the two pills but am now really worried about it! - on the few days off however I did have a colposcopy smear, and the next period started the same night. Could this have anything to do with it?

All can cause funny bleeding so don't worry. It's always important to do a pregnancy test 3 weeks after the lat time you had sex to rule out pregnancy, because periods can go a bit strange after the morning after pill.

Worth getting an sti check and maybe chat about more robust contraception at a sexual health clinic (they can do a pregnancy test too)
