Hi Anon

Thank you for your post!

Emergency contraceptives are up to 95% effective when taken as prescribed within the first 24 hours, so the risk is very small. It works by preventing ovulation and stopping a pregnancy from starting. It is not an abortion pill. It prevents a pregnancy, it does not end one. Side effects can include stomach aches, headaches, nausea and a general feeling of being unwell. Symptoms usually start 3-7 days after taking the medication and may or may not include bleeding or spotting.

Not all women get symptoms. Some get many, or a few, or none. If you don’t get your next period within a week of it’s expected date, a pregnancy test may be necessary although the risk is very low.

Best,
Susan

Hello Anonymous,

No. Do not give her another dose. You need to both use some type of birth control, such as condoms for you, and oral contraceptives, an IUD or the Depo-Provera injections for her. Postinor 2 and all other emergency contraceptives are intended to be used only in an emergency.

Hello Anon

It's far too early to know about pregnancy but it's unlikely.

Side effects of this medication can include stomach aches, headaches, nausea and a general feeling of being unwell. Symptoms usually start 3-7 days after taking the medication and may or may not include bleeding or spotting. Not all women get symptoms. Some get many, or a few, or none. If she doesn't get her next period within a week of it’s expected date, a pregnancy test may be necessary although the risk is very low.

Using a condom can prevent these side effects.

Hi,
Hubby's been excessively excited this Holiday. We had sex everyday from the 22nd of this month.
Took my first tablet of postinor, about 24 hours after the first day, took the 2nd dose 12 hours later. Because we kept having sex after then, I had to take another dose last night and this morning again, can I take the 4th tablet? Will I still get pregnant? We've got 2 kids already.

Hello Anon

You still need to take another dose of medication.

Your "excited" hubby needs to use condoms!
