Probably not: If you took postinor the day after having unprotected sex, then it is very unlikely you are pregnant. Stop taking the ampiclox, you have taken too much already, and it is doubtful that you need this medication. Try to relax. If you are very concerned about the possibility of pregnancy then protect yourself in the future by using a reliable birth control method to prevent pregnancy. ...Read more

I had unprotected sex on 4 july and took the postinor2 effectively n bled, then on 25th exactly two weeks after had unprotected sex but took the postinor on 27th today, will it be effective?

Likely yes, but...: One should stop using emergency contraception so often, and get on a reliable ongoing non-emergency contraception... such as an IUD, birth control pills, contraceptive implant, condoms, etc. Postinor and other emergency contraceptives work most of the time but not all of the time, so one can do a home pregnancy test 3 weeks after sex to confirm non-pregnancy. ...Read more

You should be: Fine. Even if you took the formulation that needed 2 pills instead of the 1 pill (not sure which one you took) you are gone and don't need any more. Any emergency contraceptive is not100% because you may have already ovulated and the work by preventing ovulation. If you have not ovulated you should be safe for that cycle. It's better though to be proactive than reactive next time. Take a preg te ...Read more

This medication is high dose Progesterone which causes the uterine lining to shed within 24 hours, preventing implantation of a fertilized egg.

Breakthrough bleed: Breakthrough bleeding is a common side effect of any hormonal therapy medication for contraception. Usually the emergency hormonal therapy has a type of progesterone that helps to thin the endometrial lining making it incompatible with implantation of the embryo. The thinning can likely cause this bleeding she is seeing. Seek help from her primary doc if bleeding continues. ...Read more

Took postinor 2 in two consecutive months and my period was always a week earlier, now it's delayed for the third month and I didn't take it...

Typical: Emergency birth control essentially disrupts the normal menstrual cycle by blocking or delaying ovulation. That it is how it works and why it is so different than a medical abortion. Irregular bleeding after taking emergency contraception is not rare. Always check a pregnancy test after using and see a doctor to start a better form of birth control. ...Read more

Hello, we did some dry sex two days ago, both in underwear, and I spilled some sperm on her underwear. Should we take postinor? Can she get pregnant?

Hmmm....: In normal everyday life, sperm does not go through underwear to create babies, just like a person cannot run faster than 28 miles per hour, cannot grow any taller after age 30 years, etc... It just doesn't happen. However, one should be careful when in only underwear, as the human biological drive to impregnate is naturally high, so sometimes stuff happens and a penis just gets into a vagina. ...Read more

Postinor: If the July 24 menses was a regular menstrual period, and your menstrual cycle typically lasts between 24 and 32 days from the day you start spotting until the day before you start spotting again, then the August 1 intercourse should not made you have pregnant, and the bleeding comes from the fact that you took the postinor. A woman ovulates on day length of cycle minus 14, e.g. 28 - 14 = day 14. ...Read more

I Took postinor 2, 5 times last month, I was to get my Periods this month but instead I only spotted for 3days (dark blood), could I be pregnant?

Pregnancy test: It is unlikely that you are pregnant. However, postinor type pills 5 times in a month is not a good practice. It is meant for accidents, not a routine contraceptive. You may do a pregnancy test 3 weeks after the last episode of sex that could have resulted in pregnancy.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex ...Read more

I had unsave sex with my girl twice in a week, and I gave her postinor 2, two times for each sex. She had a day menses the ff week. Is she pregnant?

Can't say: Don't know what "ff" stands for. Emergency contraception pills can cause bleeding. Thus her episode of bleeding may or may not be an actual period. Would recommend that she take a home pregnancy test is she does not have an obvious period when it is anticipated or at about 14 days after the second episode of sex to know for sure. ...Read more
