Hello doctor, I want to ask. U003cbr / u003eI and my wife have contact on February 27th, then take 2 tablets directly postinor2 because the plan wants to postpone a baby, then 9 days difference on 8 March, my wife and I get in touch again and consume postinor2 again (on the second date the wife had taken 4 postinor2 tablets to prevent pregnancy). My wife’s period ended on February 17, but the difference was 5 days after intercourse, namely on March 14, the wife released blood spots and there were black spots for several days. My question: u003cbr / u003e1. Is it practically menstrual blood? If not, is it the effect of taking postinor2 or early signs of pregnancy ?? u003cbr / u003e2. Can the drug be said to be successful with the occurrence of blood and black spots occur? U003cbr / u003e u003cbr / u003, please very much to be answered, thank you.
Hello Kurniawan, Thank you for the question.
Postinor 2 is a product that contains levonogestrel, which is used as an emergency contraceptive. Emergency contraception is contraception used at any time to prevent pregnancy if intercourse occurs without contraception. This pill must be taken as soon as possible after intercourse or up to 72 hours after intercourse to remain effective in preventing pregnancy. The faster it is consumed, the higher the effectiveness of the pill in avoiding pregnancy. Thus, if your wife has taken this pill according to the correct recommendations, then you do not need to worry about the occurrence of pregnancy. After taking this pill, the effect that can occur is menstruation becoming faster or slower, breast pain, headache, flatulence, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea. Spots of blood that occur is likely to be menstrual blood.
If you and your wife do not plan to have a baby, please use a contraceptive that is more appropriate. Emergency contraception cannot be used as a routine contraceptive. You are advised to use a condom or use other contraceptives such as birth control pills, birth control injections, implants, or intrauterine devices (IUDs). Please advise your wife to consult with an obstetrician to find out which contraception is suitable for your wife.
I hope this information is helpful.
