About Postinor 2: Emergency contraceptive pills can alter the menstrual bleeding for the cycle in which the emergency contraceptive pills were taken, and sometimes the next cycle too. One should be sure to check a home pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex, because emergency contraceptive pills work most of the time, but not all the time.

Postinor is: levonorgestrel which induces spontaneous abortion otherwise known as miscarriage. I would expect some bleeding afterwards when the uterus tries to dislodge the fertilized ovum and sheds the built up endometrium that is a normal part of pregnancy. You should bleed then, and sometimes it takes up to a week or two. I would make sure to anticipate the spotting for at least a week.
