Hello jjxh,

Postinor 2 should still work. It is most effective if taken as soon as possible, but will work if taken within 72 hours of intercourse with contraceptive failure. It prevents pregnancy by preventing ovulation.

You will know it worked if you have vaginal bleeding within 3 weeks of taking it.

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for your question.

Postinor 2 prevents pregnancy by preventing ovulation. It is intended to be used in emergency situation, and not for routine birth control. So, it works once if taken correctly and should never be taken frequently.

It is most effective if taken as soon as possible and should be taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex or contraceptive failure, like the condom broke.
