HELLO THERE.

THANKS FOR WRITING.

YES, POSTINOR SINGLE DOSE IS EFFECTIVE IN PREVENTING PREGNANCY .

URINE TEST FOR PREGNANCY COMES POSITIVE AS EARLY AS FIRST DAY OF MISSED
PERIOD.

A BLOOD TEST FOR PREGNANCY COMES POSITIVE EVEN EARLIER, 1 WEEK BEFORE MISSED PERIOD.

YOU CAN DO A URINE TEST AROUND THE EXPECTED DAY OF YOUR MENSES. EVEN IF YOU HAVE IRREGULAR CYCLES, THE AVERAGE CYCLE LENGTH WHICH YOU HAVE IS CONSIDERED FOR THE NEXT DUE DATE OF MENSES.

TAKE CARE.
