Is pregnancy possible despite taking Postinor-2?

I had unprotected sex on 10 th December and took postinor 2 on that same day. On 19 th December, I had unprotected sex again and took postinor 2 on 20 th December. I was supposed to have my period on 28 th December, today is 2nd January and I have still not had my period. Can postinor 2 delay my period?

You had sex 10th December and took Postinor 2 on same day. You had again sex on 19th December and took Postinor 2 on next day. On both time you took with in 24 hours. It is highly effective in preventing pregnancy. It has 95-98% success rate. But there is high chance of hormonal imbalance as you took Postinor 2 twice in short period.

It may cause earlier period, delayed in period by 1-2 weeks and excessive bleeding can occur. So do not worry if period will delay by 2 weeks. If period will delay by more than 2 weeks then consult gynecologist and undergo urine pregnancy test and or blood HCG test to confirm pregnancy. Meanwhile avoid stress, take healthy diet, drink plenty of water and do regular exercise.

Hope this may help you. Contact further if follow up needed.

Best regards,
Dr. Sagar
