Hello nonso,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community. I am glad you reached out to us with this question.

Though someone may offer a way to guarantee you will conceive a boy, don't believe it. There is no way to do that. Males have one Y chromosome and one X chromosome. Females have two X chromosomes. So, it is up to the male to pass on the Y chromosome for the baby to be a boy.

Postinor 2 is an emergency contraceptive intended to be used only in an emergency situation. It prevents pregnancy by preventing ovulation.

If you already had intercourse, five days before you were due to ovulate, it is now too late to take the pill. I would urge you not to.

Give this some serious thought,
