Hi,

You will have to wait and see. If you took the second dose, even if late, you might be ok. A pregnancy test would be accurate 14-21 days after sex.

Hello,

Both tablets are meant to be taken for effectiveness, so there may be some risk of pregnancy.

Hello Anon
Yes, take the second pill after 12 or now if you haven't. Diarrhea may be a side effect - take the medication anyway and an over-the-counter medication for diarrhea if it doesn't stop soon.
Best,
Susan

Hello.

What do you mean by Postinor 10? There is 1 pill in the single dose pack. You have to take the pill within 72 hours of having unprotected sex.

For the 2 tablets version of Postinor: take the second tablet 12 hours after the first.

You should not take more than the recommended dose. Be sure to read the information that comes with the pills so you know what to expect.
