Ok, so I took EC in Nov, and got my period twice. In Dec, I got my period on Christmas Day. and erm, now (Jan 4th) it seems as if I'm getting my period again??

Or is it a tear in my hymen, because on the 2nd of January, my bf might have penetrated my vagina a bit say 2-3cms..

Yesterday, (jan 3rd) I thought it was spotting from abrasion, but today it seems as if there's more blood...

How much does one bleed from a torn hymen? Is it possible that my hymen is torn? Or is it likely that EC has made my cycle wonky and I'm actually getting my period for the 2nd time within 10 days of my last period?? Pls help....Worried... [Confused]

When your hymen tears, it would be more like spotting than anything else.

If you seem to be bleeding more than that, then it's quite possible you are still feeling effects from the EC. It can screw with your cycle for a few months, in some cases, so it is quite possible it's from that.

So for the next few months, I can't be sure when to expect my periods until my cycle regulates itself again?

Right. They should settle back down to your original rhythm, but it's hard to say exactly when.

ok then thanks!

Just checked again, and bleeding seems lighter again... I wonder why... Ah well, I guess I'll just have to wait a few days to see what happens.

It could just be spotting, and not a full blown period. That would still be normal with the EC.

Yep. It can take a few months to get back to your normal cycle, and it's only been about a month or so.
