Thanks for your query.
It is not at all recommended to take Postinor twice within one cycle.
It would make your bleeding pattern highly erratic.
However, if you wish to ensure that you do not get pregnant, now that you have had unprotected intercourse, the only option left is to take Postinor once again.
Be warned that you might have nausea, vomiting, and face irregular spotting / bleeding which would confuse you.
I would ask you to switchover to reliable birth control .
if you take Postinor, then do take a pregnancy test after 4 weeks anyhow, as you cannot rely on the menstrual pattern after Postinor twice within a cycle.
As you must be well aware, for maximum effectiveness, take it as soon as possible.
All the best
