I had my period on 27th December which lasted to 30th December. From my period calendar my unsafe period starts on 3rd January. I had unprotected sex on 1st January and I took POSTINOR2 one hour after the sex. Please is it possible that I can get pregnant? Because I had spotted for two days. Now I don't know what is wrong. I need the answer urgently. Thank you

Dear Anon,

Thanks for reaching out to us today.

The spotting is likely from the Postinor 2. You will know it has worked when you have bleeding and/or your next period. If your period does not come within 5 days of the expected time, test for pregnancy.

Postinor 2 can cause changes in the menstrual cycle. Some women start their next period on time, earlier or later than expected. May have a lighter or heavier flow.
