I had sex with my gf on the 4th of December 2014 which was her 9th day 5th or 6th day after her November period. She used postinor 2 within the first 2hours as a single dose. 6 days after she had virginal bleeding for 3 days. And it stopped. Question, to what percentage was she save- I mean, could she be pregnant till now, she hasn't seen her period.
NB: She used the postinor 2 again 2days after the first unprotected sex.

Hello richards001,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for seeking our advice.

Postinor 2 was effective in preventing pregnancy because your girlfriend had vaginal bleeding. Her next period should start close to when expected. However, some women do experience changes in their menstrual cycle as a side effect of the pill. The next period can start earlier or later than normal, but generally, not by more than five days.

Good Afternoon,
I must say I am happy for your prompt response- but my major concern is that she hadn't seen it. When I pressed her further- she later told me she was scared hence she used another set of postinor 2 the second day.
My question is could the second dosage caused the delay till now?
I look forward to hearing from you soon. I really do appreciate once more.

Hello Richards,

Thank you for the added information. It really changes things.

Your girlfriend seriously upset the normal hormonal balance that regulates her menstrual cycle. Postinor 2 should never be taken more than once during a one month menstrual cycle.

She should consult her gynecologist or primary care physician about this.
