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 Susan,
i had sex with my girlfriend about 5am and she took the first tab of postinor2 about 10pm. After that we changed our mind about not getting pregnant and decided not to take the second tab. Please are there any side effects for taking the first one? can it have any negative effect on the pregnancy if she is pregnant?
pls help out cos we are now worried sick...
thanks

Hi Anon

Her chance of pregnancy is still there since she didn't take the second pill but her chance is a lot lower.

Just keep trying for pregnancy and let this go. She may not even have been fertile at that time in the first place.
Best,
Susan

Hi Anon

Postinor 2 is 90-95% effective when taken correctly. This discharge could be a side effect. You can test for pregnancy in about 10 days.
Best,
Susan

Hey dude, sign and symptoms of pregnancy don't occur within days. The process that take place for pregnancy to occur after intercourse is the sperm searching for ovum and that could take up to 3 to 5 days. After that, it took 7 to 10 days for implantation to occur. So the most quick pregnancy could occur need at least a week or so, which you probably will not be that lucky.

Hi Anon
If she takes the medication within 24 hours of sex then her risk is very low because the meds are 90-95% effective. Please look up the side effects so that she knows what to expect.
Best,
Susan
