i had unprotected sex near the end of my period. (well, more like penis with precum/vulva contact) about a week later, i was bleeding again. Slightly lighter than my regular period flow. I took EC within the next day of having unprotected sex. I was wondering if that week-after-period bleeding was from effects of the EC or merely period irregularity (i got my first period only a year and a half ago). Also, I'm already two days late for this month. Could the bleeding that happened earlier have been my period for the month?

EC, essentially, is a huge dose of hormones. And those hormones can cause periods to be out of whack. Top that off with irregular periods in the first place, and you will get pretty much what you're experiencing.
