Understanding Postinor 2

It is a brand of emergency contraceptive pill that contains levonorgestrel, a synthetic hormone similar to progesterone. It inhibits ovulation, fertilization, or implantation of the fertilized egg in the uterus to prevent pregnancy after unprotected intercourse or contraceptive failure.

The pill, available in the form of a single tablet, is intended for use as soon as possible after unprotected sex, ideally within 72 hours, although it may still be effective up to 120 hours (5 days) after intercourse.

Considerations and Precautions

While generally safe and well-tolerated, it may cause side effects in some women, such as nausea, vomiting, fatigue, abdominal pain, and changes in menstrual bleeding patterns.

These side effects are usually temporary and resolve on their own within a few days. However, if you experience severe or persistent symptoms after taking Postinor 2, it is essential to seek medical attention promptly.

Additionally, it’s important to note that Postinor 2 does not provide protection against sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Therefore, women who engage in unprotected sex should consider STI testing and use condoms to reduce their risk of infection.

Usage Guidelines and Effectiveness

To maximize the effectiveness of of the pill, individuals must follow the recommended dosage and administration guidelines provided by doctors.

In Singapore, Postinor 2 is available over-the-counter at pharmacies without a prescription, allowing women to access emergency contraception promptly when needed. However, individuals should note that it should not be used as a regular form of contraception and is intended for emergency use only.

The effectiveness of the pill in preventing pregnancy depends on various factors, including the timing of administration relative to ovulation, individual metabolism, and other individual factors. 

While taking Postinor 2 correctly yields high effectiveness, it does not guarantee 100% prevention, and there remains a risk of pregnancy, especially when used beyond the recommended timeframe.
