1 Answer:

Hello Dema,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Postinor is a type of emergency contraception that contains the synthetic hormone levonorgestrel. This synthetic hormone works to prevent pregnancy by making cervical mucus thicker while also inhibiting the process of implantation (implantation of fertilization in the uterine wall). With the right use, this drug can be very effective in preventing pregnancy. Some sources even say the success rate can reach 99% or more.


However, as the name suggests, emergency contraception should only be used in emergency conditions, for example in cases of sexual harassment, and so on. The use of emergency contraception as an effort to prevent pregnancy in ordinary household cases, especially without direct recommendations from doctors is actually not appropriate. Therefore, we, even in free forums like this, are not authorized to explain in detail the rules of consumption, to avoid abuse. Improper consumption of emergency contraception, in addition to potentially causing unplanned pregnancy, can also cause you to experience some side effects, for example abnormal vaginal bleeding, headache, nausea, abdominal pain, and so on.


Therefore, you should visit the doctor or obstetrician nearest you directly to get a detailed explanation regarding your question.


I hope this helps.
