Hello Anonymous,

Postinor 2 prevents ovulation only for the one time or that one month. It will not prevent you from becoming pregnant in the future.

Hello Anonymous,

Postinor 2 prevents a pregnancy before it is established by preventing or delaying the release of an egg from the ovary.

It is estimated that Postinor-2 will prevent 85% of expected pregnancies. 95% of expected pregnancies will be prevented if taken within the first 24 hours, declining to 58% if taken between 48 hours and 72 hours after unprotected intercourse.

The pill does not prevent conception, only effective to prevent ovulation.

Hi Anon!

Anytime you have unprotected sex you risk pregnancy. As to whether you will get pregnant this time, that is not for us to say - that's up to your body.

Best,
Susan

Hello Anonymous,

Postinor 2 can cause your next monthly period to be late. If you do not get your period or any bleeding by July 22, test for pregnancy.

You mention "usually if I take it..." How often have you taken the pill?
It should not be taken frequently. It should never be taken more than once in a month.

Repeated use can make it less effective in preventing pregnancy and can seriously upset your menstrual cycle.

Regards,
Maryann

Hi , I had sex around 10pm, being afraid that he ejaculated inside of me we rushed to the nearest pharmacy and bought Postinor 2 . The packet only came with 1 single pill ... I took the pill about 20 minutes after having sex. Do you think 1 pill was enough ? Or should I buy another one ? I am really scared , i am very young to have a child .

Hello anonymous,

Postinor is a single pill emergency contraceptive- only 1 pill. There is 1 pill in the pack. You have to take the pill within 72 hours of having unprotected sex.

For 2 tablets version of Postinor you take the second tablet exactly after 12 hours after the first.

Anonymous, if you purchased the single dose, there is no need to buy another dose. One dose is enough.

Regards,
Maryann
