I am a young woman aged 26, my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex and I took the morning after pill within 12 hours after having sex. We are not sexually active  it was a once off mistake...
My question is this: I am bleeding very slightly, is this normal? (the incident took place 5 days ago) Normally my period is very heavy....
