Thanks for posting your query.
You have taken postinor 2 more than 24 hours after the first act. Now for the second act, you need to repeat the dose of postinor 2 as it inhibits the implantation.
It is best to take the emergency contraceptive within 24 hours of having an unprotected sex to have best results. Such frequent dosing might cause menstrual irregularities. Please do use a regular contraceptive like oral pills from next cycle.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
