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?

Hi. I took postinor the single dose during my fertile period ie. 5 days after my period because my bf and I had sex and the condom came off and he came in me. I took the pill between 48-50 hours after intercourse. 7 days after taking the pill, i had light pink discharge and thought i was gonna come on my period, it only lasted a few minutes and since then nothing. my nipples are really tender to the touch and have mild cramping but that is it, no bleeding. Is it possible the pill didnt work? My period is due on the 24th August this month.

I took postinor 2 after a day sex then after two days of another sex then I took another one. But I made a mistake by taking an alcohol after 3 hours am so much confused if the last one I took could be effective for up to three days as it supposed to be.

Hello, I had unprotected sex and took P2. About 12 hours after taking the second pill I had sex again, is the dosage I took still effective or do I need to take a dose of P2 again?

Hi Anon

That depends on when your period is due. If you are late, take a pregnancy test although your risk is very low.
