Hi. I had unprotected sex on the 4th of July, which was about 2, 3 days after my period had ended. I took emergency contraceptive (postinor 2) the same day. My period is a week late (my cycle is usually 26/27days long) and I am experiencing stomach pain. I also have discharge kinda similar to when I'm ovulating. I feel like I usually do when I am on my period or when I'm about to get it but there's No period, not even spotting. Are these the effects of postinor2?

Hello Anonymous,

Yes, this is because you took Postinor 2, which prevents pregnancy by preventing ovulation.

There was no need to take it. You would not have been ovulating two or three days after you finished your period. There was no risk for pregnancy.

Your period will start, but later than expected.

If you use one tablet and did not end up using the second after 12hrs are you still safe coz am very scared.

Hi Anon!

If the instructions say to take two pills, 12 hours apart, and you do not do this, then you won't be protected as stated.

Had an intercourse 3 days ago. Took postinor 2 the next day at 2pm and the next one th following day at 1pm. Is it still effective? Breasts feeling kind of sore. Could that be any one of the symptoms?

Postinor 2 is 90-95% effective when taken within 24 hours. Read the leaflet for more information.

Best,
Susan
