Hello Anonymous,

No. Do not take another dose. Emergency contraceptives are intended for emergency use, such as the condom breaks. They are not designed to be used as a regular form of birth control.

If you do not want to become pregnant, please have your partner wear a condom and you must use some type of birth control, such as pill, patch, IUD or injection.

An emergency contraceptive prevents pregnancy by preventing ovulation or the monthly release of a mature egg from an ovary.

Since your next period is due around May 6, ovulation happened around April 20, so there was little risk for becoming pregnant during intercourse on April 30 and May 2.

Your period may start earlier or later than expected as a side effect of the pill.

Hello Anonymous,

Without penetration of your pTenis into her vagina and no ejaculation, there was no risk of her becoming pregnant.

Postinor 2 is a strong pill that contains a high dose of the same synthetic hormone found in most birth control pills. It prevents pregnancy by preventing ovulation.

It is effective if taken properly. Take the first pill as soon as possible and take the second pill exactly 12 hours later.

Anonymous, your girlfriend did not take the pills properly and took them needlessly. Pregnancy is not the concern here. A hormonal imbalance is the concern. She may see a chance in her menstrual cycle. Her next period might start earlier or later than expected. Flow might be lighter or heavier than normal.

Hello Doc,

I had unprotected sex during my ovulation. I took postinor 2 after 8 hours. Can I have unprotected sex after my ovulation and not get pregnant?

Hello Anonymous,

Postinor 2 prevents pregnancy primarily by preventing ovulation.

Even though you took the pill eight hours later, ovulation already happened. You can hope it might have prevented pregnancy by causing changes in your cervical mucus making it harder for sperm to reach the released egg.

I would not advise you to have unprotected sex until you have vaginal bleeding, either breakthrough bleeding from taking the pill or getting your period.

If you must be sexually active before this happens, please have your partner use a condom.

If you do not have any vaginal bleeding within three weeks of taking the pill, you must test for pregnancy.

Regards,

On April 1 I saw I got bleeding same as my normal period. Now my expected date of my menses is due already but my period haven't come yet. Should I'm pregnant? Thanks

Hi Suzzej,

The bleeding of April 1 proved that Postinor 2 worked and you did not become pregnant.

After taking the pill, some women will start their next monthly period earlier or later than expected. That could be why your period is late.

Hello Anonymous,

Postinor 2 prevents pregnancy by preventing ovulation. It is most effective if taken before ovulation and as soon as possible after unprotected intercourse.

Anonymous, since you took it within a day, you should be protected.
If you do not have any vaginal bleeding within three weeks of taking it, test for pregnancy.

Maryann
