Hello, I took Postinor 2 12 hours after sex, and the 2nd pill only 18 hours later... The day I took is my fertile/ovulation period. Can postinor 2 still work during the ovulation period? I am very worried. Please advise. Thank you and god bless.

Hello Anonymous,

All emergency contraceptive, including Postinor 2, are intended for emergency use in the event of contraceptive failure and are not meant to be used as a regular form of birth control.

If you do not want to become pregnant, please use some type of birth control, such as a condom or start taking an oral contraceptive daily.

When was your period due?

You probably were not at risk for pregancy because Postinor 2 works by preventing ovulation. If you do not get your period within three weeks of taking the pill, test for pregnancy.

Regards,
Maryann

Hi Maryann, I took 2 Postinor on 20th, and another 2 pills on 22nd, (12 hours apart for each time) after unprotected sex. My period was supposed to come on 19-21st. I am a few days late now. I also did not feel any discomfort or serious side effects from the pills, I feel normal. Is this normal? Did my period got delayed because of the pills? What are the chances of pregnancy? Please get back to me soon, as I am very anxious now. Thanks in advance!

Hello Anonymous,

If you do not have vaginal bleeding within the next three weeks, then you should test for pregnancy.

The high dose of synthetic hormone in Postinor 2 could have upset the normal hormonal balance that controls the menstrual cycle causing the delay. Consult your gynecologist on this.

Hello Anonymous,

No chance because by that time the released egg has disintegrated.

Hi there, my last period started on 21st Oct, till 26th. Had sex on 15th this month, but my bf did not penetrate inside me as we did it for a while only. Again had sex on the 22nd, the condom broke and I took P-2 immediately and another one 12hrs later. What are the chances of getting pregnant? My period was supposed to come on the 18th this month but it's not here yet.
