Thanks for posting your query.
Taking postinor 2 within 72 hours of unprotected sex is not likely to affect your baby. This is a high dose hormonal pill which can be associated with an irregular bleeding.
It is not likely to cause any abnormalities in the baby as the implantation does not take place till day 7 after conception. You can safely continue with the pregnancy.
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.
