Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for your question.

Vaginal bleeding within three weeks of taking Postinor 2 indicates the pill prevented pregnancy.

Levels of hCG, the pregnancy hormone, can be detected in blood about 11 days following conception and in urine about 12 to 14 days following conception.

A good rule of thumb is to wait until your period is late by at least seven days. Test in the morning. Use the first urine of the day, which is concentrated and will provide the most accurate result. With an early response test, you can test six days before your expected period start date.
