Hello Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community! The postinor 2 you took after having unprotected sex on October 25 since you took it within 72 hours. 

It is possible that hormones from the emergency contraception may still be in your system, but emergency contraception should only be used after having sex and for one act of sex.

It sounds like unprotected sex is a common thing, and if you are concerned about pregnancy, I highly recommend using protection or some form of birth control. Emergency contraception like postinor 2 should only be used for emergencies and should not be used as a regular birth control option. Taking emergency contraception regularly can confuse your hormones and mess up your menstrual cycle.

I hope this has helped! Let me know if you have further questions.
