I had sex with my bf on the 19th October ,exactly 2 weeks after my period and the condom broke. I took Postinor 2 within 12 hours of the broken condom and i didnt have sex since.The Postinor 2 pill did not bring my period but i am getting slight stomach cramps. Is there any possible chance i can still become pregnant?

Hello Anon

EC has some severe side effects and this cou;d have been one.
Or it could have been food poisoning or something else.

Hello Anon

P2 is to be used for emergencies only, not as a method of birth control.
These side effects are due to this over-dosage.

Hello Anonymous,

You will know if Postinor 2 was effective in preventing pregnancy once you have vaginal bleeding. If you have no bleeding within three weeks of taking the pill, test for pregnancy.

Hello Anonymous,

No. Postinor 2 prevents pregnancy by preventing ovulation. This lasts for one menstrual cycle.

Hi...July 3, 2017 my period came to an end. I had sex on that day, started a box of Yasmin tablet and took the Postinor 2 tablet. On the 9th of July, I was suffering with an yeast infection and took mycosyst. On the 10th of July, I had sex and took Postinor 2 tablets. The next day my yeast infection flare up and I got suppositories. I took one. I am wondering if the yeast infection medication disrupted the birth control pills and Postinor tablets. Am I pregnant? Thanks
