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!

We don't know if you are pregnant either. You can test for pregnancy 10-14 days after sex.

Hi ayesely

Thanks for your post!

Yes, there is a risk - about a 5-10% risk.

You don't take P2 before sex as a precaution. You use proper birth control like a condom or you need to go on the birth control pill. P2 is for emergencies, not pre-planned sex.

Hello, I had sex with my boyfriend on 10th June, took Postinor 2 an hour later at 3pm. However, I took the second pill at around 6AM the next day. Im currently experiencing discomfort on my abdomin area & my breasts hurt/tender too and a few threads said i'm supposed to get my period a week after i eat the pill. Its been 6 days, i hve yet gotten my period. Its this normal?

Hi Anon
The discomfort is likely due to the P2. Not all women bleed and not all women bleed within a week. Bleeding is a not a sign that P2 worked.

You can test for pregnancy about 14 days after sex or if you miss your expected period but you risk is low - only 5-10%.
