You are protected only for first intercourse the other days are not protected. If Postinor is taken before ovulation it can postpone ovulation and it happens 2-3 days later and if contact happen you can get pregnant. It is not advisable to take two Postinor in a month cycle. You can use a stable every day contraception method for the other months.
