Is pregnancy possible despite taking Postinor-2?

Hi, had sex with my girl friend during her ovulation with a condom. So i released inside the condom inside of her but withdrew like 10seconds later from inside her. So i was scared maybe i could have spilled some sperm around the tip of her vagina. So i told her to take postinor2 the following morning. Can she still get pregnant?

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

How many hours after intercourse she took postinor - 2?

Postinor-2 is an emergency contraceptive only. Postinor-2 is not intended as a regular method of contraception.

It is used to prevent pregnancy when taken within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse. It is estimated that Postinor-2 will prevent 85% of expected pregnancies. 95% of expected pregnancies will be prevented if taken within the first 24 hours, declining to 58% if taken between 48 hours and 72 hours after unprotected intercourse.

It is not known whether Postinor-2 is effective if taken more than 72 hours after unprotected intercourse.

You already used barrier contraceptive so nothing to worry. Chances are very less but still get UPT done if she misses the cycle.

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

Regards,
Dr. Penchila Prasad Kandikattu
