Dosage/Direction for Use of Postinor 2 pills.
One Postinor-2 tablet should be ingested within 72 hours following intercourse and another one 12 hours after taking the first tablet.
According to data of clinical studies, it is advisable to take the first tablet within 48 hours (but not later than 72 hours) after intercourse, since the efficacy of the preparation decreases if more than 48 hours elapse between intercourse and drug ingestion.
Postinor-2 tablet may be used at any time within the menstrual cycle.
If vomiting occurs within 2 hours after drug intake, the dose must be repeated.
No more than 4 tablets may be taken per month.
Now someone asked this question: i took the second postinor 2 pill 16 hours after the first, what are the chance of getting pregnant?
My Answer: Assuming you took the first tablet of Postinor-2 immediately after sexual intercourse and thereafter your forgot to take the second dose in 12 hours time rather it took you 16 hours to take the second tablet of postinor2 after the initial first…. No problem, go ahead and take it… Your chances of getting pregnant are still slim since you took the first pill almost immediately. However, it would have been better and your chances of getting pregnant much slimmer if you took the second postinor tablets exactly 12 hours after you took the first. Nothing still spoil though.. .Nothing to worry about. . Don’t panic. But you must ensure you take postinor 2 as recommended to avoid pregnancy stories.
