Tinumini,
Aisha has said it all,but most people prefer to take it at night cos it causes drowiness.it is very effective and works within 72hrs of unprotected sex.

I also hear that it destabilizes the menstrual system.

postinor2 is actually a very harsh drug on young women. i had stayed away from it 4 2yrs b4 i used it again n biliv me, i had a serious outbreak of painful acne on my face for ova 3wks! wel, i found a milder n effective postinor wich is d normal postinor1 or just postinor n its effective witout d obvious side effects of postinor2. only tin is, dnt tk more dan two in a month. wel, u shud nt be havin unprotected sex anyway, so if u must, dnt do it more dan twice in a month. if u tk more dan two in a month, ur menses will be delayed basically! den u get paranoid dt mayb it didnt work! lol
Re: Postinor 2 - How Effective Is It? by USB: 8:06pm On Sep 16, 2009
I had no effects after taking Postinor-2. My menustral cycle didn't change, I didn't even bleed. I did feel a small discharge but saw nothing in my panties. Does that mean the drug did not work on me? And I did take it according to how it had been instructed, and I within the 24hours after unprotected sex. I am very worried, what does it mean?

lol. dnt panic. if u didnt get pregnant, then of course it had its effect. nt everybody is unfortunate to experience side effects of d drug. if u didnt get pregnant, then its probably gud 4 u so long as u take it within 48hrs after unprotected sex or as soon as u remember if its nt more dan 72 hrs. if its bin 2wks sinc u took it or sinc u were exposed to unprotected sex, then to ease ur mind of worrying, you shud get a home self test pregnancy kit and follow its instructions, u shud be fine once you see d results. takkia

since yu are mature enough to have sex through your USB port, then you shouldn't worry about giving birth through that same USB port

I did bleed eventually but the flow wasn't much like I usually get it. Is that normal?
Oluschenco, I know I should have been smart not to have done it without protection so all I can do is not repeat that mistake. But I prefer not to be judged for something I did wrong
Re: Postinor 2 - How Effective Is It? by Oluschenco(m): 12:15pm On Sep 24, 2009
USB,
Since you've bleed, no matter how small, your are 80% safe.

I know I should have been smart not to have done it without protection
You see, no one is above the temptation to enjoy this thing, its only a matter of planning ahead, especially when you know your BF will be around.
Re: Postinor 2 - How Effective Is It? by USB: 12:22pm On Sep 24, 2009
Why 80%. What would make it a 100% then if i may ask. And you are very right about that. I should have been and should be more careful. Thank you

Re: Postinor 2 - How Effective Is It? by USB: 2:35pm On Sep 25, 2009
I didn't throw up, I just bled thats it. I researched before taking it and from what I read, the effects on people may differ. I am not a medical professional though so don't really take my word for it

Re: Postinor 2 - How Effective Is It? by ornate: 1:04pm On Dec 25, 2009
i have a question here. hopefully any one out there can enlighten me.

my girlfriend took the 1st pill within 24 hours and the 2nd pill 12 hours later on time.
What happen was that we had a drinking session and she vomited. She only vomited 14 hours after the 2nd pill was taken.
Does that means that the effect of the pill is gone?
Does she needs to take another dosage?
Please Help!

A has taken as a usual drug and at d end of d day she was three month pregnant unkwoningly
Re: Postinor 2 - How Effective Is It? by DicksonDonny(m): 8:35am On Jan 05, 2010
Of course she has to take so much of it this time atleast to be sure when she pour out again there wil still be few left but don't say this advise is from me cos i don't like being held responsible for something i didn't do.

I really have to caution against the abuse of this drug , its an emergency contraceptive and the aim is really for where regular contraceptives failed .i.e. condom broke or you forgot to take you birth control pill unplanned intimacy with a new partner or unfortunate circumstances of despoil . When taken regulary the failure rate wth frequent use is actually worse than the withdrawal method. grin grin so why possibly disrupt your hormone levels for something that is no better than using nothing

ECPs as ongoing contraception

One brand of levonorgestrel pills, Postinor, is marketed as an ongoing method of postcoital contraception. However, there are serious drawbacks to such use of emergency contraception:

Due to the increasing severity of side effects with frequent use, Postinor is only recommended for women who have intercourse four or fewer times per month.
Used according to package directions (up to 72 hours after intercourse), levonorgestrel emergency contraceptive pills are estimated to have a perfect-use pregnancy rate of 20% per year when used as the sole means of contraception (as compared to a 40% annual pregnancy rate for the Yuzpe regimen). These failure rate are higher than those of almost all other birth control methods, including the rhythm method and withdrawal.
Like all hormonal methods, emergency contraceptive pills do not protect against sexually transmitted infections.
ECPs are generally recommended for backup or "emergency" use, rather than as the primary means of contraception. They are intended for use when other means of contraception have failed?for example, if a woman has forgotten to take a birth control pill or when a condom is torn during intimacy.
