My gf had a period that started on the 21st of December and last Saturday here period came back, however before that she had took the morning after pill on two separate occasions. I am wondering would the second period restart her menstrual cycle or would it still be from the 21st of December?

The "morning after pill" is a heavier combination of hormones found in birth control pills. Side effects can include abnormal vaginal bleeding and a shifting of the menstrual schedule.
