Morning after pill
During intercourse the condom tore. I decided to get the morning after pill just in case. About a week after drinking it I got my period. Today (more than a week after my period) I'm not sure if I'm getting my period again but at the moment it seems to be a brown discharge. Could you advise if this does occur as I'm worried. I understand that my hormones are completely disturbed.

This is most likely a side effect of the morning after pill. It can disrupt your cycle.
