Hi Anon

Your bleeding is a sign you are not pregnant.

Hi I would like to know if I took the pill a little over 24 hours and I'm probably already in the ovulation stage of my menstraul cycle if the pill will still be as affected as before

Hi Anon!

Since you were just over the 24 hour mark for you pill, then your risk should still be close to the 5% as it is when taken within the 24 hours.

It's fine if you were near ovulation.

Best,
Susan

Hello Anonymous,

The only way to know whether Postinor 2 worked to prevent your partner from becoming pregnant is to wait for her to have vaginal bleeding. If she doesn't have bleeding within three weeks of taking the pill, she needs to test for pregnancy.

Hello Anonymous,

Postinor 2 prevents pregnancy by preventing ovulation. So, you were still protected when you had intercourse again, before taking the second pill.

If you and your husband are not ready to be parents, please use some type of birth control, such as condoms, oral contraceptives or an IUD.

An emergency contraceptive is intended for use in an emergency situation of contraceptive failure. You should never take it more than once per menstrual cycle nor depend on it as your regular form of birth control.

Regards,
Maryann
