    Hello madam, postinor 2 works within 72 hours of having unprotected sex, the earlier the better though.you however, had sex again 2 hours after the postinor 2 (not sure why you did). it should still hopefully do its job but there is still possibility of failure (it's never 100%) . good luck to you, continue to practice safe sex.

    OK thanks for that. secondly I had an abortion a month ago.. took postinor 2 1st week of this month and yesterday.. that's twice in a month now. when will I likely see my period because since the abortion haven't seen my period. will the p2 affect it??

    it's is a hormone based drug so it has the capacity to affect your period. you might see a bleed earlier than normal which might not be a period or you can have a delayed period.however, if you pass the likely date of your next period, just do a pregnancy test.

    OK.. how many hours does it take for postinor 2 to work in the body..is it up to a day?
    Dr. Augustine I answered:

    it's starts to work the day you take it, it works mainly by inhibiting ovulation but if egg has already been released the there is nothing to be done.so let's hope there was no ovulation after you took the postinor 2.
