Could postinor 2 taken after intercourse have failed?

I had unprotected sex during my ovulation and took postinor2 same day. It's 3 weeks now after the sex and my period is delayed by 5days now. I'm scared. I did pregnancy test at home using 'accurate' and it showed positive. Could it be that the postinor2 failed? I'm afraid pls advise...

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

There is possiblity of pregnancy even after taking postinor.

If you don't want this pregnancy, you can go for medical termination of pregnancy with medicine.

Consult your gynecologist to get prescription for it.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
