Hello Anon
We cannot predict whether a woman will get pregnant or not. Take the second pill now and hope for the best.

What if I took one postinor 2 pill after unprotected sex and took the other like 16 hr after ,did a test and it was positive is there any chance if I take it again I might be pregnant?

Hello Anonymous,

Taken as directed, Postinor 2 is 95% effective when taken within 24 hours of unprotected sex. Its effectiveness decreases to 58% if taken between 49 to 72 hours after the event. I would assume that taking only one dose would drop its effectiveness by close to 50%.

You could check with your pharmacist or physician. If you do not have vaginal bleeding within three weeks of taking the pill, take a pregnancy test.

Hello Anonymous,

Postinor 2 will not have been as effective because she did not take the second pill.

Changes i the menstrual cycle are a reported side effect. Her next period can be delayed for that reason. If she does not get her period or have any bleeding, beyond the spotting, within three weeks of taking the pill, she should test for pregnancy.

Regards,
Maryann
