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

After taking two doses of postinor 2 in the same week, I got my period., after my period, there has been yellow watery discharge with no odor or itch?

After taking two doses of postinor 2 in the same week, I got my period., after my period, there has been yellow watery discharge with no odor or itch?

Infection: A yellow watery discharge could be a sign of an infection. If you took emergency contraception twice in one week, you must be having unprotected intercourse and pregnancy is not the only risk with that but it is the only one decreased by postinor. You need to be tested and that would also be a good time to start a more reliable method of contraception. Be safe. ...Read more

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

So I took postinor 2 the day after I had sex but I took the two tablets at once. It is more than a week now and am have vaginal bleeding together with stomach pain like if am having my period. Could I be pregnant????

Maybe, but unlikely: Plan B, Postinor 2, and other brands of emergency contraceptive pills can alter the menstrual cycle for the cycle in which Plan B or Postinor 2 was taken, and sometimes the next month's 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. ...Read more

My girlfriend took postinor 2, she had a period a week earlier than which is normal because of the drug I think. But she's being having a white discha?

Depends: Having a little white discharge is normal. It may not be noticed normally but it is there. After taking a pill because you are afraid you might get pregnant makes you more vigilant and you then notice the discharge. It may also be sexually transmitted. If it gets worse or is a lot, see your physician. Use condoms, both of you should be responsible to have. Prevention beats treatment always. ...Read more

May be a while: Postinor is one of the hormone-containing "morning-after pills" or postcoital contraceptives. Menstrual irregularity after taking this medication is not uncommon. If the period has not come by two to four weeks later you should check a pregnancy test. If it is positive definitely see your ob/gyn but if it is negative you may need to wait another few weeks before seeking evaluation. ...Read more

Had sex during my safe period 25th to 27thSept and took the postinor 2 tablets all at the same time on 29th. Been bleeding after 7Oct. What does it mean?

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. ...Read more

Check pg test: Check a pg test to be sure, anytime your period is abnormal, in length, symptoms, or timing. Repeat in a week and if negative, and you miss another period, see your doc to find out why. Follow the instructions on the kit, and be sure it has not expired, too. Also, infections can occur, if you are at risk of pregnancy. So get checked for those if your pg test is negative. Practice safe sex ...Read more
