Hello.

Thank you for the query.

You can take Postinor within 72 hours of unprotected sex with or without food. You wouldn't notice any changes after taking the Pill which would suggest that the pill is working.

If at all you have conceived, you will notice Vaginal Bleeding, which would be moderate to severe.

Hope I have answered your query, I will be available to answer your follow up Queries.

Take Care.

Regards,
Dr. Mohammed Tauseef.

Hello XXXXXXX

Thank you for Writing Back to me.

Since your flow had ended on Thursday and you have had sex three days later, you wont have any chances of getting pregnant as the fertile period is between the 10th and 16th day of your cycle.

Good Luck.

Take Care.

Regards,
Dr. Mohammed Tauseef.
