ask: Over dosage of Postinor 2

By Kennie
 
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?

Hello Anonymous,

Thank you for your question.

I cannot stress enough that Postinor 2 and all other brands of emergency contraceptives are intended to be used only in an emergency situation, contain a high dose of the same synthetic hormone found in most birth control pills, and should not be taken more than once in a one month period.

You have upset the delicate hormonal balance that controls your menstrual cycle. My advice is contact your gynecologist or visit a walk in women's health clinic to have the symptom of pain evaluated.

Regards,
Maryann

Hello! I took postinor 2 on 30th Oct after an unprotective sex, 3 days before my expected period arrives. On 12th november, I feel cramps and found brown discharge from my undies and that's that - no more blood whatsoever. So far, I have not experience any pregnant symptoms and will postinor 2 mess up my cycle ?

Hello Anonymous,

Your period for November may start earlier or later than normal. Flow might be lighter or heavier than normal. These changes are a reported side effect experienced by some women.

Hi
I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend and took the first pill right after. U delayed in taking the second pill by 6hrs but I took the pill anyways and took a 3rd pill 12hrs after the second pill.
I didn't see my menses since that day and its getting to 2months since my last menses after the 3 pills. I've done 2 pregnancy test at different and intervals and both were negative but I am concerned about my menses not showing up for about 2 months now. What do I do

Hello Anonymous,

You need to be evaluated in person by a physician.
