Hallow Dear,

Since your girlfriend has consumed Postinor 2 immediately after the unprotected sex, she is well protected from pregnancy. These pills are effective post coital contraceptives when consumed within 72 hours of the unprotected sex.

These pills have some aftereffects:

1. Some bleeding may show few days after the consumption of the pills. This is normal occurrence and needs no medical attention. The bleeding stops of its own within few days. She has this type of the bleeding.

2. The period following the pills may get delayed by few days to a week or so. This should not create stress.

I hope your doubts are clarified.
