Hi what if it's been taken twice in a cycle n interval of 7 days, will it delay your period because am having pains, my nipples hurts

Taking it twice in a 7 day interval is considered misuse and these pills are for emergencies only.

Your next period may be a few weeks ago and your symptoms may be due to overuse.

Hello Anonymous,

Postinor 2 prevents pregnancy by preventing ovulation. You take it after unprotected intercourse not before. Once you have your period or bleeding you know that you did not become pregnant.

Hello Anonymous,

The only way to know if Postinor 2 worked is to wait for vaginal bleeding.
