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?

What if a female is on pearl contraceptive pills for only two days had unprotected sex, will postinor 2 work if she takes it?

Hello Anonymous,

All pills work best when taken as directed. Postinor 2 tablet one is taken as soon as possible and tablet two is taken 12 hours later.

I think taking both together should be okay but ask a pharmacist or her gynecologist to be sure.

If I didn't complete the dosage of Postinor 2. Will I still be pregnant? Cos I took one Postinor2 after an unprotected sex and I didn't take the other one, till 2 days I had unprotected sex and took the other one immediately. I'm I safe?

Hello Anon

What is normal for one person is not normal for another. Read the paperwork that came with the medication or you can look up the manufacturer's website. If you are concerned about pregnancy, a test can be taken 14-21 days after sex.

Hello Anon

Your system is overloaded with hormones due to you overdosing on emergency contraceptives. Your risk is low but if you are trying to avoid pregnancy, why do you keep having unprotected sex?
Start using condoms. Read the paperwork that comes with the EC so you know more.
