Hi,
I had set with my girlfriend after 10 days from the start of her period(well in her fertile window). We used a condom and she took first pill of POSITNOR 2 after about 20 hours then next pill after 12 hours. Now it's about 15 days gone from her menstrual cycle and she complaining about abdominal pain. Is that sign of a pregnancy? Please help. Also she bled some blood after taking pills.
Thanks

Hello Anonymous,

Thank you for your question. If you do not start your period within three weeks of taking Postinor 2, you need to take a home pregnancy test.

Please consider calling your doctor about frequent urination and serious abdominal pain. You may have a urinary tract infection.

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.

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
