Welcome to ehealthforum,
Withdrawal bleeding usually occurs after 5-7 days of taking the emergency contraceptive indicating that it has worked (if you have taken them as per the instructions). If you have had 2 normal periods after your sexual encounter, chances of pregnancy can be ruled out. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance. If pregnancy gets ruled out, and if you are not ready for pregnancy, but intend to remain sexually active, you should consider visiting your gynecologist to get started on suitable regular birth control measures to be protected (after your periods). Be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact if you are not ready for pregnancy.
Take care.
