Hello Anonymous,

The bleeding after taking Postinor 2 proved the pill worked to prevent pregnancy. However, the hormone in the pill could have upset the normal hormonal balance that regulates your menstrual cycle.

When is your period due to start? If you do not get a period at all this month, please contact your gynecologist.

Hi,My period usually start before end of the month. then i tried to take pregnancy test(twice) last dec 5 and its negative, my last sex was oct 29(protected sex) then last nov. no sex interaction after the bleeding. Am i pregnant? is it possible that i will not have a period this coming month?because i took postinor 2 more than once in a menstrual cycle and two months in a row. I need advice.

Hello Anonymous,

It is very likely that you caused a hormonal imbalance because you took Postinor 2 more than once during a menstrual cycle, and two months in a row.

This is a problem that must be evaluated by your gynecologist, in person.

Hi Anonymous,

Yes, the bleeding is the result of taking Postinor 2.

Hi Mary Ann,

Yes he always use a condom, but I'm just worried that's why I take it. So my menstrational cycle will change?

Hi Anonymous,

It might only affect your next period. However, if you notice changes, that go beyond one month, consider reaching out to your gynecologist.

Hello kends,

Welcome to EmpowHER. I am glad you reached out to our community with your question.

If you are having "protected" sex, there was no need to take Postinor 2. Is your partner always using a condom?

The bleeding was triggered by the pill and proved that it worked and you did not become pregnant.

However, you should NEVER take an emergency contraceptive more than once in a menstrual cycle and not two months in a row. It can make the pill less effective. It can cause a serious upset in the hormonal balance that regulates your menstrual cycle.

Please speak with your gynecologist and chose a type of birth control instead of relying on an emergency contraceptive. Learn more by visiting our Birth Control page.
