Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for coming to our community with your question.

You mention that it is normal for you to miss a period. How long has this been going on? Have you spoken to a gynecologist about this?

This may be important in determining if Postinor 2 or any other emergency contraceptive will be effective.

Postinor 2 prevents pregnancy by primarily preventing ovulation. If you have an irregular menstrual cycle or miss periods, it can be difficult to know when you are ovulating.

You will know the pill worked once you have vaginal bleeding or your next monthly period. If you have not had any bleeding within three weeks of taking the pill, test for pregnancy.

Please consider seeing a gynecologist about your irregular menstrual cycles and to discuss birth control options.
