Hello Anonymous,

Thank you for your question. Vaginal bleeding after taking Postinor 2 indicates the pill worked to prevent pregnancy.

If you and your girlfriend have had unprotected sex since she bled, there is a risk for pregnancy. She can take an early response pregnancy test as early as five days before her next period is expected to start.

Regards,
Maryann

Hello Anonymous,

Thank you for reaching out to us for advice. Any emergency contraceptive is most effective in preventing pregnancy when taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex.

Since you took the first pill five hours after unprotected sex, taking the second pill four hours later than directed should not decrease the effectiveness of the pill.

We will not know if it worked until you get your next period. If you do not have vaginal bleeding within three weeks of taking Postinor 2, test for pregnancy.

Regards,
Maryann

Hello Anonymous,

Women are advised not to take an emergency contraceptive, including Postinor 2, more than once during a monthly menstrual cycle.

Postinor 2 prevents pregnancy primarily by delaying or inhibiting ovulation. In your case, you probably didn't ovulate on the day that you thought you would.

Maryann
