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 Maryann,
I had unprotected sex on July 3 and used postinor 2 some hours after (I took both tablet at one dosage), and am expected to see my period on the 9th of July but haven't seen it and I took a pregnancy test best but it's was negative. Please, my question is what I do and enlighten me better on what to do.
Thank you

hi ,

As I have read .
postinor should not be taken twice in a month cause it will cause disrupt in the menstrual cycle.

but ,

I've got a question if per say example, if one have unprotected intercourse on Saturday , and has taken postinor immediately after the intercourse, following day (sunday)morning as instructions -take the 2nd pill ,

but on Monday night accidentally had another unprotected intercourse.

so should one have to take another postinor pill again???or no need ??

and how long will the postinor med will be in the human system?

kindly assist ,
Thanks.

Hello Anonymous,

No. Postinor 2 is effective if taken within 72 hours or three days of unprotected intercourse.

Hello Anonymous,

You over used Postinor and that is why you are seeing this change in your menstrual cycle and period.

At this point, you need to be seen by a gynecologist. Quite simply, you messed up your hormones.

Hello Anonymous,

If she does not have any bleeding within three weeks of taking the pill, she needs to test. Only way to know.
