ask: Over dosage of Postinor 2

 
Rate This

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?

Hi Anon

No, it's not ok at all to take Postinor everytime you have sex. You need to be on the birth control pill or use condoms. Postinor is a large amount of hormones that you can't take every week or every day, it's for emergencies only. 

You will be bleeding all the time if you continue this.  Read more on this site about how to use birth control properly.

Best,

Susan

Hello!
I want to ask a question about Postinor 2. I had sex on 16th of May at 2 PM. I took the first pill at 3:30 PM. I was suppose to take the second tablet 12 hours later so at 3:30 AM,i forgot to take it and i just remembered this morning at 7 AM. I immediately took it before 7:30 AM . At 7:30 AM it was going to be 16 hours after. Am i pregnant? Please help me because i am afraid.
Thank you very much for your answers.

Hi Anon

Nobody can tell you if you are pregnant. Since you didn't take the pills as directed, nobody can tell you anything for sure but I doubt a 4 hour time difference will really matter.  When taken within 24 hours, P@ is 90-90% effective.

Hi Anon

Since you took it four days after, your chances are about 50/50 that it'll work, IF you were to get pregnant.

Hi Anon

This is likely a side effect from EC - your cycle should normalize in the next few weeks.
