Does Postinor 2 cause heavy vaginal bleeding?

I took postinor 2 tablet two days after my monthly period after having unprotected sex with my fiancee.... Five days after I started bleeding heavily, this is the second day and it hasn t stopped. Is it a normal side effect of the drugs?

Postinor as with any other hormonal pills can cause irregular bleeding and sometimes heavy menstruation.

Generally, it will settle by itself without treatment. You can take Tranexamic Acid tablets for symptomatic relief.

If bleeding is profuse you can consult a gynecologist and get evaluated.

Hi Doctor, I had unprotected sex during my ovulation period on the 8th of the month (I kept track on menstrual cycle app but I forgot) , I took postinor 2 immediately during the first day, 11.30pm and 12 hours later 11.30am. Every was alright but I had been feeling fatigue until 5 days after eating the pills, I bled for 3 days heavy flow to light flow. My period usually comes at the last week of the month (23rd-30th). Is there a high possibility that I m pregnant?
