Do not take any more: You should take the first pill of the Postinor-2 pack as soon as possible. An hour is good. The directions state the second pill should be taken 12 hours after the first ... so you took that one a little early. Probably ok. YOU DON'T NEED ANY MORE; ANOTHER ONE WILL PROBABLY DO MORE HARM THAN GOOD! You have an excellent chance of not being pregnant;you won't know FOR SURE until you get your periled
