If microgynon is started and having unprotected sex before 7 days for it to take effect, will drinking postinor 2 after sex affect the microgynon taken?

Hi no_name10!

There is no need to use emergency pills when you are on the Pill (you should be protected after 7 days of taking the pill) and it is not needed as a "back-up". In fact, using it can upset your cycle even when on the Pill.

However, you should still be protected from pregnancy - it won't affect the regular birth control pill you are on.
