Thanks for the query.

Postinor-2 has to be taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex. Even if it is taken within 72 hours, the success rate for it to prevent pregnancy is around 85%. Since you had an abortion recently, the uterus would take a bit of time to get prepared itself for the next pregnancy. Hence there is only less chance for a pregnancy now. So, keep your calm and wait for your periods to come. Do pregnancy test, if it is missed. It is always better to practice safe sex.

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

Thank you
