Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you that irregular bleeding after the morning after pill is common.  I always check a pregnancy test first.  If that is negative and the bleeding is not excessive, I tend to take a "wait and watch" approach to the bleeding.
I would also encourage you to consider a more effective form of contraception if you are going to be in a long term relationship,
Good luck!
Dr B
