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?

I had sex for the first time in my life yesterday.. I was scared of pregnancy since I am supposed to see my period in few days time. So I took postinor2 following the instructions.. But now I read people's comment and I am worried.. Please can someone tell me what I should expect.

My dear sis. If u followed the instructions, then u shouldn't be worried. U r definitely not going to be pregnant. Your menses may be delayed or may come earlier than expected ( about 2 days delay/ earlier). But its likely u will bleed two times this month. Its very normal ok. One will be your actual menses, and the other will be the withdrawal bleeding as a result of the drug.
Just relax!!!

Hi Anon

Yes, it should go back to normal after a month. If not, give it another month and things will all be back to normal.

Best,

Susan

I've taken postinor-2 four times now.The first time i took it my period was 4 days early.The next two times I bled exactly seven days after taking the pill.This last time I took postinor-2 both pills about 13 hours after having sex but i didn't take it with water.about two days later i took the pills again but now with water.Its now been 8days since I took the first pill and i haven't bled yet.Could i be pregnant?Could the fact that i took the pill without water affect anything?Can i fail to bleed after 7days like in the last two cases and have an early period?Does taking postinor-2 in one cycle affect the ovulation date of the next cycle?
