I took the morning after pill [Levonelle] about 2 weeks ago. My period came early. They usually last around 5 days, but it's now day 9 and it's showing no signs of slowing down and it's a dark brown color, has been for most of the 9 days. Is this normal? I'm starting to worry.

Welcome to ehealthforum

It is normal to have irregular and prolonged period after morning pill intake as they contain high doses of hormones.The next few cycles may also be regular so avoid having unprotected intercourse.
Consider using some other form of contraception regularly.

Take care!
