Levonelle/MAP - when is AF likely to show up?

My last period started on 20 Dec, had a contraception failure on the 26th, just as my period was ending. On 27 Dec I took Levonelle (the morning-after pill) on direction of a pharmacist, within 12 hours of DTD. She told me I might have spotting and my period could be a few days late. On the 31 Dec (5 days after Levonelle, 11 days since start of last period) I started bleeding, which I was expecting after being warned of the spotting. It was a lot heavier than I was expecting, cramps, etc. It tailed off and ended on the 4th Jan.

I'm now on cycle day 34 and no sign of a period. Was the bleeding on the 31st an extremely early period? I've done two pregnancy tests and they were negative, however I am having sore boobs and vivid dreams (the first signs of my last pregnancy). It says on the leaflet you get with Levonelle that if AF is more than 5 days late to see a doctor - is this just to rule out pregnancy? It is not easy for me to get off work and I am feeling OK, should I just wait for it to show up? Has anyone had a similar experience? BTW if it does turn out I am pregnant, it is not a disaster, I would just prefer not to be, hence the back up option of Levonelle!

Thanks in advice for any advice and experience!

Yes mine went all over the place. Had heavy bleeding like you said and then next period took ages to come but it did took a few months for cycle to settle back down again though. My boobs go like that before every period anyway.

Minime, thanks for your advice the other day. AF turned up today, so all's well that ends well! Thought I would update in case anyone else is searching on here for anecdotes, as I was.
