Hello Anonymous,

You say it was protected sex. Why did she take an emergency contraceptive, if that is the pill she took?

It is too late to do any thing about the pill she vomited.

If she has no bleeding within three weeks of taking the pill, she can test for pregnancy.

Hello Anonymous,

Postinor 2 causes changes in the menstrual cycle. It can cause your next period to start earlier or later than expected.

It is intended to be used in emergencies and not as regular birth control.

If you do not have any bleeding within three weeks of taking the pill, test for pregnancy.

You could always speak with gynecologist in the meantime.

Hello Anonymous,

Yes, it can cause your next period to start earlier or later than expected, but not by more than five days.

Hello Dancool,

Postinor 2 prevents pregnancy by preventing ovulation. It is effective if taken within 72 hours of contraceptive failure, like the condom broke.

It is intended for emergency situations and not as a form of regular birth control.

I don't think taking the pill before sex will cause harm, but she can always ask the pharmacist.
