Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for seeking our help with how to take Postinor 2 and if it is too late for the emergency contraceptive to be effective.

Postinor 2 prevents pregnancy when taken within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse. It is estimated that Postinor-2 will prevent 85% of expected pregnancies. 95% of expected pregnancies will be prevented if taken within the first 24 hours, declining to 58% if taken between 48 hours and 72 hours after unprotected intercourse.

Take one tablet as soon as possible after unprotected intercourse. The sooner that you take the tablet, the more effective it is likely to be. It is best to take it immediately after you receive it. The first tablet should be taken no later than 72 hours after intercourse. Take the second tablet exactly 12 hours after the first tablet.

If you are taking any other medications, or are allergic to any medications, speak with the pharmacist before you purchase Postinor 2.
