Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to our community with your questions.

Salt and water will do nothing to prevent you from becoming pregnant.

Postinor 2 prevents pregnancy by preventing ovulation. So, it will work if you take it within 72 hours of unprotected sex and before ovulation.

If you have a 28 to 30 day menstrual cycle, March 1 was day 10 of the new cycle and just before the time of ovulation.
