Brief Answer:
It works

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Postinor2 is currently one of the safest and effective post coital emergency contraceptive pill when taken within 72 hours post intercourse.
A sign of no bleed or spotting is not the right way to measure its effectiveness in my opinion. Not always does it bleed after Postinor2.
It prevent abortion and foetus formation. You just have to wait for one more week.

Please do not worry about pregnancy if you had taken it early after intercourse.
