Welcome to HCM.
There are always chances of pregnancy with unprotected sex during fertile period,but you had taken postinor 2 within proper time.
Bleeding is due to withdrawal effect of postinor.
Now wait and watch for regular cycle.
Avoid sex till get regular cycle or go for protected sex to avoid pregnancy.
Consult gynecologist for further guidance.

YPostinol2 pills when taken before menstruation,postpones ovulation,to serve as an emmergensy pill.
I feel your postponed ovulation ocured on 19th day, & the bleeding suggested the ovulation.As a result your scheduled periods will also be delayed .
