Question: Hi I took postinor the single dose one on December 6th and yesterday I tested postive to a home pregnancy test. My boyfriend thinks the postinor can harm the baby and cause abnormalities and as such wants an abortion. Is it true that postinor can negatively affect a fetus?

Hello,
Postinor is not known to cause damage to the developing baby. But since you are already pregnancy its important to rule out ectopic pregnancy.Also if you want to continue this pregnancy,regular check ups wit your doctor is important.
But no studies have proven that this drug can cause negative effect on the fetus.
