I took both pills in one dosage, is this dangerous or less effective? Also, what are the usual side effects after taking the pills and how soon after? I took the pills about a 17 days ago and now I'm spotting ( not heavy but blood is present). Could this be a side effect?

Hello Anon

If there was less than 24 hours between intercourse, yes.

Hi,
I had unprotected sex on the 7th Oct. took p2 1hr later all at once. I started bleeding 11th Oct. for 4days and am yet to see my flow which was supposed to be on the 21st oct. Did blood text and it came out negative. But I have not seen mine. This is the 31st. Is the hormonal changes. Feeling so sick.

Hello Anon

P2 can delay the cycle so this is probably what is going on. It can have unpleasant side effects.

Your period should arrive within a month of your last bleed - in your case that is the 11th Oct.

Hello Anon

We cannot say if it worked or not. We don't know if you're pregnant or not. Are you? Take a test and you will know - one would be accurate by now.
Best,

What if a female is on pearl contraceptive pills for only two days had unprotected sex, will postinor 2 work if she takes it?

Hello Anonymous,

All pills work best when taken as directed. Postinor 2 tablet one is taken as soon as possible and tablet two is taken 12 hours later.

I think taking both together should be okay but ask a pharmacist or her gynecologist to be sure.
