Hello Doctor,

But i have not experienced any pregnancy symptoms, how long will it take for the signs to show in a woman body.

You can read about pregnancy here:


Don't stress about pregnancy right now or you'll be convinced you are- you don't even know if you're pregnant. You need to take a test about two weeks after you had sex to see if you're pregnant.

Hi Debby

It's probably your period or a side effect of taking Postinor 2 - nobody can tell you which is it. 

Please see a doctor for any further concerns you have, we have helped you on the topic as best we can.  If you have further concerns, please talk to a doctor.  We are not doctors here.

Hi Debby95

Your discomfort is likely due to side effects from the emergency birth control. 

With regard to pain when you urinate - you urinate from your urethra, not your vagina. But you may have an infection. If you have a urinary tract infection, you need to get this treated as soon as possible - do not wait - it may lead to a kidney infection.
