Hello Anonymous,

I am troubled by reading your post.

An emergency contraceptive is effective if taken within 72 hours or 3 days following contraceptive failure. This pill is intended to be used in an emergency such as the condom broke during intercourse.

Without penetration of his penis into your vagina, and without ejaculation, there was no risk for pregnancy.

An emergency contraceptive contains a high dose of the synthetic hormone called levonorgestrel. It prevents pregnancy by preventing ovulation.

By taking the pill six days later all you did was unnecessarily dosed your body with a man made hormone.

The bleeding which started on June 17 was probably your period.
Your next period may start on time, earlier or later than expected because of taking the ECP.

Please consider checking in with your doctor. If you have a gynecologist, schedule an appointment. Now that you are sexually active, you really must start using some type of birth control consistently.
