Hi, i had unprotected sex last night but we did pull out method, when he took it out it took 10 seconds till he cum. I took postinor1 three months ago, do you think i should take one right now? Or the probabilities of getting pregnant are really low? ( i start ovulation tomorrow). Also, how much time apart can postinor be taken? I am 20 years old

Hello, Anon.

Thank you for your post.

If he ejaculated after he pulled out, you should be fine. But what you are doing is risky as accidents can easily happen.

Emergency contraceptives are up to 95% effective when taken as prescribed within the first 24 hours and up to 90% effective if taken within 72 hours, so the risk is very small. It works by preventing ovulation and stopping a pregnancy from starting. Side effects can include stomach aches, headaches, dizziness, breast pain, nausea and a general feeling of being unwell. Some women experience bleeding or spotting. The more frequently they are taken, the more likely a woman is to have side effects and an irregular cycle. They should be taken only for emergencies, not used as a method of birth control.

Side effects usually start 2-7 days after taking the medication. If a woman doesn’t get her next period within a week of it’s expected date, a pregnancy test is advised. Periods can often be delayed or longer/shorter as a result of taking emergency contraception. We cannot predict this for our readers in terms of the length of delays. Each woman is different. Periods should get back to normal by the second cycle after.
